Women at Work, Trends 2016 - ILO Report
11 Mar 2016 -  Discussion on the findings of the report.
Throughout their working lives, women continue to face significant obstacles in gaining access to decent jobs. Only marginal improvements have been achieved since the Fourth World Conference on Women of Beijing in 1995, leaving large gaps to be covered in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the United Nations in 2015. Inequality between women and men persists in global labour markets, in respect of opportunities, treatment and outcomes.
Speakers: H.E. Mr. Antonio Patriota, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Brazil to the UN and Chair of the Commission on the Status of Women; H.E. Mr. Olof Skoog, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Sweden to the UN; Ms. Lakshmi Puri, Assistant Secretary-General and Deputy Executive Director of UN Women; Mr. Vinicius Pinheiro, ILO Special Representative to the UN and Director.
