Black Women Employment and Sickle Cell Disorder – a Reasearch Study by Myrle Blaine (Derby University)
Opportunity to be involved in a unique research study.
The aim of this research is to acquire information and understanding about the lived employment experiences of black women’s’ experiences in the labour market living with sickle cell disorder (SCD). The study will be looking at SCD and employment. The purpose is to enable the exploration of these experiences to provide an in-depth, detailed account of black women’s experiences; to understand them from a woman’s perspective.
By carrying out this research, it is hoped it will significantly add to the knowledge in the area of SCD and black women’s’ employment experiences from a feminist perspective; provide recommendations that act as a guide used by employers to improve their employment practices for black women with SCD and women in general. It is hoped it helps to understand multiple inequalities; raise awareness and improve career development opportunities for women to gain and retain employment. It will also form part of a doctoral study.
This research study is being led by MS. Myrle Blaine a post graduate doctorate student at Derby University Derby, UK.
