THINK GLOBAL PEOPLE GENDER EQUALITY


imbalance in responsibility for care between men and women could make a diff erence to softening the impact of the pandemic on women at work, and increase access to quality jobs and careers for the benefi t of everyone.


Potential interventions include:


• Employer or state-funded provision of childcare or tax policies that encourage both spouses to work


• Family-friendly policies, including fl exible programmes and part- time programmes, to support workers experiencing an increased childcare burden during the pandemic and beyond


• Rethinking performance reviews and promotions, as well as senior- and middle-management buy-in to ensure the widescale adoption of changes


• A professionalised childcare sector • Access to basic infrastructure – reduction of time spent on unpaid work, ie in lower-income countries this would include tasks like fetching water and fi rewood


• Crucial measures to change social norms about who bears childcare responsibilities.


STEPS TO ADDRESS INEQUALITIES The report goes on to provide steps to address inequalities:


• Increase digital infrastructure, particularly economies


in emerging


• Address gender stereotypes that inhibit women’s access to mobile phones and improving women’s digital literacy


• Measures to promote gender diversity in funding for women entrepreneurs,


including


eliminating biases in recruitment and selection


processes for incubators or accelerators


• A special focus on women-owned enterprises under the stimulus programmes of various countries


• Enabling technologies ensuring that women have access to the means of identifi cation through high-assurance digital-ID with simple, inclusive registration processes


• Interventions to address


attitudinal biases: eff orts to change entrenched, widespread attitudes about women’s role in society.

“ Governments, businesses and stakeholders can run campaigns and enlist male champions to help drive home the idea that a larger number in work represents socially and economically benefi cial progress”


This quote struck a chord with me, particularly in the context of future trends, like automation, and how these might amplify or even blunt the impact of Covid-19 on women, as well as how the pandemic aff ects the wages, job security and workplace benefi ts for both genders. Our global community is in


a position via our Think Women community initiative to make a diff erence. A diff erence not only to the career prospects of women working in an international context, but also to help prevent a slide backwards in terms of pay parity and gender inequality. We are rising to the challenge highlighted in the report for governments and businesses to “consider how to safeguard girls’ education, tackle violence against women and protect maternal health – to name but a few.”
