Empowerment of Women
Women represent both half the world’s population and half the world’s economic potential. Female Empowerment and closing the Gender Gap is becoming a global necessity not only for women themselves but for societies where women are not able to fully participate in the workforce, society and their local communities.
Governments and businesses around the globe are realising that through adopting female empowerment initiatives and raising the employability of their female workforce, they can raise GDP, reduce poverty and improve the quality of life for everyone: women, men and their families. Through influential champions, we strive to empower women to fully achieve their potential across all areas of employment.
One of the key stakeholders in achieving Gender Equality and promoting Female Empowerment is the private sector. Using pre-agreed targets, we work with businesses to ensure that the inclusion of women and the development of their skills contributes to the business by delivering training to both women and men. raises awareness and facilitates developmental learning.
It is a transformational process that raises awareness, facilitates developmental learning and delivers techniques that all lead to a shift in attitudes, behaviours and outcomes.
Employability Skills Training
Through skills based training, we raise levels of employability. Women represent both half of the world’s population and half the world’s economic potential. Their participation in the labour market reduces poverty because they often invest 90 per cent of their income in the well-being, education and nutrition of their families. Yet labour force participation by women has stagnated at about 55 per cent globally since 2010. Moreover, women are disproportionately represented in precarious work – low-paid, low-skilled and insecure jobs.
Training plays an important role in the pursuit of equality of opportunity and treatment for women and men in the world of work. Yet women often lack access to technical and vocational education and training. Many also lack the basic functional skills, such as literacy and numeracy, to participate meaningfully in the work force. Overcoming this challenge requires the adoption of a life-cycle approach.
This includes improving girls’ access to basic education; overcoming logistic, economic and cultural barriers to secondary training for young women; and meeting the training needs of women re-entering the labour market and of older women who have not had equal access to opportunities for lifelong learning.
