UNFPA Myanmar | Gender Equality 2018
“Gender equality is not only a pressing moral and social issue, but also an inclusiveness and critical economic challenge. Especially at the work place, we have long been committed to workplace equality, and have all undertaken individual initiatives in our own rights. Now is the time we all should come together to combine our initiatives to make a stronger impact.”
Zarchi Tin, CEO at Dai-ichi Life Insurance Myanmar Ltd
Workplaces are implementing policies to support women and men to share work and family responsibilities equally, which increases workers’ well-being and business productivity.
