- Gender Equality
The issue of gender inequality in the workplace creates not only individual bias but also hinders sustainable national and global economic development. Despite the contemporary emphasis on equality and the expansion of rights and freedoms, public stereotypes often dominate objective views of the current situation.
In turn, it hinders progress and weakens the capacity for the development of organizations (both companies and unions) as it can lead to conflict and weaken worker performance.
- In many places, women’s career prospects are limited, and the dominance of men in managerial positions is clear. In addition, there is a gap in income and wages between male and female workers.
Since men hold most senior roles, their salary levels are higher than women. As a result, the inequitable division of labor requires a particular approach to pay and debate existing inequalities in the workplace from an income opportunity perspective.
The issue of gender bias in the labor market is not a topic that needs to be discussed only in terms of discrimination against women. But more broadly, how to create a decent and equal work environment for all workers.
