Women at work


What is it?

This project is one of seven initiatives organized in the run up to the ILO’s centenary, in 2019.

The ITCILO aims to support the ILO’s research on women in the world of work through learning and training activities.


How does it work?

The initiative is connected to the ILO’s assessments of relevant issues, such as stereotypes, discrimination, and violence. Assessment findings guide future actions and strategies, including ITCILO activities.

The Centre provides capacity-building, technical assistance, and awareness-raising services for governments, workers, employers, and other stakeholders. These activities are designed to complement the ILO’s efforts to change social norms and promote equality at work.

The ITCILO’s main goal is to strengthen the capacity-building component of the ILO’s larger initiative around women in the world of work.


Where can I find more information?

The ITCILO’s gender equality topic page is full of resources and information about learning and training activities.

The ILO’s website provides background information and more details about the initiative.
