Gender Balance Guide: Actions for UAE Organisations

By October 5, 2017October 5th, 2020No Comments

The Gender Balande Guide lays out the road-map for the United Arab Emirates and its organisations to harness the untapped potential that women represent.

Building on OECD expertise, it provides a list of practical actions that can be taken by UAE organisations in order to achieve gender balance and work towards gender equality.

These actions cover five distinct areas:

  • Actions to implement commitment and oversight for gender balance
  • Actions to integrate gender into policies and programmes
  • Actions for engaging personnel towards gender balance
  • Actions to implement gender balance in leadership positions
  • Actions to implement gender sensitive communication

The guide was prepared by the OECD in collaboration with the United Arab Emirates Gender Balance Council (2017).
