The Benefits Women Look For

In 2020, the International Labour Organization and the United Nations published a comprehensive report in collaboration with the EU with specific recommended policies and practices for increasing gender equality at work.

There are five key themes, with recommended practices for each. The report provides 29 specific practices/actions that companies can take.

Review the list. How many of these practices does your company do? Are you willing to commit to increasing your gender-equity practices?
