Gender Equality in the Workplace: Measuring What Matters for Transformative Change
Combating gender inequality has emerged as a key area of concern within the field of corporate sustainability reporting, just as it has in the Sustainable Development Goals. Yet the data that are disclosed by companies often tell us little about progress. To be effective partners in realizing the transformative vision of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, corporations need to direct far more attention to key structural issues that determine women’s disadvantage in the workplace and set meaningful normative targets for moving toward equality.
UNRISD Research and Policy Briefs aim to improve the quality of development dialogue. They situate the Institute’s research within wider social development debates, synthesize its findings and draw out issues for consideration in decision-making processes. They provide this information in a concise format that should be of use to policy makers, scholars, activists, journalists and others.
