In 2014, G20 leaders committed to reducing the gap in participation rates between men and women by 25% by the year 2025.

What is it?

The women at work centenary initiative aims to better understand, and to address, why progress on delivering on decent work for women has been so slow and what needs to be done towards securing a better future for women at work. This is one of seven initiatives organized in the run up to the ILO’s centenary, in 2019.

The ILO Turin Centre supports the ILO’s research on women in the world of work through learning and training activities. The main goal is to strengthen the capacity-building component of the ILO’s larger initiative around women in the world of work.

How does it work?

The ILO Turin 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.

Where can I find more information?

The ILO Participatory Gender Audit is a resource designed to introduce and manage institutional change.

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