ETUI conference: Women, Work and Cancer

On 4-5 December 2018, the ETUI will be holding a conference in Brussels on work-related cancers. Work on the prevention of occupational cancer in women is currently facing some difficulties. Epidemiological research in this area focuses far more often on men than on women. There is a stereotype of occupational cancer only being an issue for male professions in traditional industries.

This event will be an opportunity to examine the relations between working conditions and female cancer. The fight to end discrimination against female workers with cancer or post recovery will also be an important topic.

Active simultaneous interpretation will be provided into and from English, French and Spanish.

Registration is free of charge but mandatory due to the limited availability of seats. Those wanting to take part in the event are requested to register online.
