Promoting Gender Equality in Employment
Sep 2013 - Dec 2016
Article 42 of the Constitution
The program promotes advocacy and awareness initiatives designed to increase gender equality and women’s economic empowerment in Georgia and ensure inclusive economic growth in which women participate on an equal basis with men. The program works by mobilizing women to demand enforcement of their rights to equality at different work places; increasing the incentives for employers to comply with the existing non-discrimination provisions in Georgian law; and enhancing the current legislative and regulatory framework to increase protection for women’s rights to equality in the workplace.
The goal of the program is to have increased involvement in and benefit from educational, professional and economic opportunities for women and girls. The main objectives are to increase the participation of women and girls in decision making at community and municipal levels, and increase their capacity to make more informed choices based on increased access to information and services in the areas of education, training, employment, and professional development.
This activity will advance women's role in political, economic, and peacebuilding activities. It targets women in IDP, conflict-affected, and ethnic minority communities in Tbilisi, Mtskheta-Mtianeti, Kakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Imereti, and Gali.
