Women are often among the most vulnerable actors in global supply chains, often doing less skilled work than men and receiving (on average) 25%-30% less pay for the same work.
Empowering women in the workplace both delivers business improvements and can have a positive ripple effect, with women helping to improve lives in their community as they gain more life skills and confidence. They also tend to invest any increased earnings in their family.
- We help female workers gain vital life skills on health issues, finance and leadership through our flagship programme UP!.
Our UP!+ programme is helping some 1,450 highly able women develop their negotiation and advocacy skills, empowering them to play a key role in improving workers’ rights.
