Labour Market

The labour market is a dynamic economic space where individuals participate in the exchange of their skills, labour, and services in return for wages, salaries, or self-employment income. In the context of gender equality, the labour market plays a significant role as it often exhibits disparities in employment opportunities, wages, and career advancement between women and men. The overarching goal is to ensure that the labour market is equitable, where individuals of all genders have equal access to job opportunities, fair compensation, and career progression, thereby fostering a more inclusive and just workforce that values diversity and promotes economic empowerment for everyone. Achieving gender equality in the labour market involves addressing and eliminating gender-based discrimination, supporting work-life balance, and creating an environment where individuals can thrive irrespective of their gender identity.
