Abstract

Notre article recommande que le but de l'équité en matière d'emploi soit défini en ces termes: "assurer un lieu de travail intégré", au lieu de "l'embauche et la promotion des membres des groupes cibles." Nous affirmons qu'une certaine forme d'équité dans l'emploi est nécessaire pour accroître l'embauche d'hommes dans les occupations à prédominance féminine. L'article montre qu'au Canada les femmes dominent dans un nombre significatif d'occupations. En nous servant d'une étude de cas, menée par l'Université de la Saskatchewan, nous montrons que la politique actuelle n'aboutit pas à assurer l'égalité dans le lieu de travail. Finalement, nous exposons les bénéfices additionnels qui résulteraient des changements de politique recommandés. /// This paper recommends that the goal of employment equity be stated in terms of "achieving an integrated workplace" instead of in terms of "hiring and promotion of the members of the target grops." It argues that some type of employment equity is needed to increase male employment in female-dominated occupations. The paper shows that a significant number of occupations in Canada are female-dominated. Through a case study of the University of Saskatchewan, it shows that the policy in its current state is not achieving an integrated workplace. Finally, it discusses a number of additional benefits of the recommended policy change.
