Gender Equality and the Corporate Sector

Published: December 2009

The paper focuses on how the commitment of businesses to promote gender equality within their organisations can be strengthened. It reviews examples both of encouragement of corporate social responsibility for gender equality and of legislative reforms to enforce change, and concludes that employers cannot solve persisting gender inequalities in the corporate sector on their own. A mix of encouraging, enabling, and obliging measures is needed to advance gender equality in the corporate sector.
