Gender equality is a cross-cutting policy driver for the Centre. The promotion of equal opportunities and equal treatment for women and men has always had an important place in the policy and activities of the ILO.
The ILO has adopted several international labour standards on equality in employment. Some of them, for example those on equal remuneration, non-discrimination at work and workers with family responsibilities, cover all women and men in the world of work. Others target specific categories, such as women, indigenous and tribal peoples, workers with HIV and AIDS, and people with disabilities. The activities of the Centre in this area aim to assist ILO constituents and other ILO stakeholders in ensuring that relevant international labour standards are ratified and applied and policies, programmes and institutions are gender-responsive, promoting equality in the world of work, and creating the conditions for more inclusive workplaces.

At the Centre, challenges and prospects on non-standard forms of employment are analyzed during the ILS Academy
Over the past few decades, in both industrialized and developing countries, there has been a marked shift away from “standard” (i.e. full-time, open-ended, direct) employment to non-standard forms of employment. In developing countries, non-standard workers have always constituted a substantial proportion of the labour force, but non-standard employment has also grown in segments of the labour market previously associated with standard jobs.
