Working Paper


When women of non-English speaking background (NESB) are the subject of research, they are usually selected from the Tjlue collar' occupations. The public sector was selected as the work arena because existing research has focussed on NESB women in the private sector. An extensive literature review* was undertaken, of research conducted in Australia and overseas, and no studies were found of NESB women working in white collar occupations, in the public sector.
