Workplace gender equality is achieved when people are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources, and opportunities regardless of gender.
Do our workplaces need a revolution?
The Cayman Islands, along with many countries worldwide, has made significant progress towards gender equality in recent decades, particularly in education, health, and workforce participation. However, is the gender gap in the Cayman Islands workforce still prevalent?
We want to know. You can help!
The aim of gender equality in the workplace is to achieve broadly equal outcomes for women and men, not necessarily outcomes that are exactly the same for all.
Achieving gender equality is important for workplaces not only because it is ‘fair’ and ‘the right thing to do,’ but because it is also linked to a country’s overall economic performance.
Workplace gender equality is associated with:
- Improved national productivity and economic growth
- Increased organisational performance
- Enhanced ability of companies to attract talent and retain employees
- Enhanced organisational reputation
This initiative is made possible by organisations in the Cayman Islands who proudly demonstrate interest and care for workplace diversity by providing financial support for this initiative.
A team of people is volunteering their time and expertise to making this initiative a success.
