Gender equality relates to equality between women and men with respect to their treatment, opportunities, and economic achievements in the workplace.
This is beneficial for all individuals to achieve their full potential, for the economy to utilise the skills and productivity of the workforce efficiently and for society to increase social cohesion.
Pakistan Business Council has entered into a partnership with International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group (WBG), to help improve employment opportunities for women in Pakistan. The initiative is part of a larger IFC effort to drive economic development in Pakistan and is IFC’s first engagement in Pakistan focused exclusively on increasing women employment. Activities include day long events, live webinars, roundtable discussions and the release of a video on International Women’s Day.
