Enhancing Gender Equality and Mainstreaming

The Gender Seal Private Sector project will seek to promote gender equality in the workplace through public-private partnership. A core output of the project is the implementation of a Gender Equality Seal Certification Programme. Companies which earn the Gender Equality Seal, at either the Gold, Silver or Bronze level are those that have demonstrated achievements in gender-equality practices through recruitment, organizational placement, wages, times and working hours, opportunities, care of the vulnerable, sexual harassment protocols and budget allocations for gender activities. The programme aims to address persistent gender gaps in the workplace by encouraging the relevant entities to create equitable conditions for both men and women and establishing environments where women’s work and contributions are equally valued.
