Tipsheet Advancement of women to lower and middle management
Do you want to increase the strength and diversity of your organisation? Make better use of the talents of women by structuring your organisation in such a way that they have the same opportunities for advancement to leadership positions as men. Although the advancement conditions for men and women are often the same, in practice it doesn’t quite work out that way.
This is not only a missed opportunity for the organisation. The underrepresentation of women at the executive and management levels is also a human rights issue. It is a result of gender inequality which at the same time perpetuates this inequality.
Gender inequality is a form of discrimination. It prevents women from reaching their potential and from fully participating in society.
In this tip sheet, the Institute for Human Rights offers advice on how organisations can facilitate the advancement of women to lower and middle management.
