"Discrimination in the workplace remains a key challenge to achieving gender equality at work, and in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, for businesses and economies around the globe to be able to effectively respond to the crisis while “leaving no one behind” will be crucial. Within such framework, the ILO Helpdesk for Business on International Labour Standards is a platform that guides company managers and workers on aligning their business operations with international labour standards and the MNE Declaration and building good industrial relations. Promoting organizational practices that support non-discrimination is a key aspect of the ILO Helpdesk for Business.
This webinar will provide participants with an overview on how to implement policies and practices that promote non-discrimination and gender equality in the workplace, taking into consideration the challenges that businesses around the world may be facing once the current pandemic subsides. This includes an overview of relevant resources and practical tools available on the ILO Helpdesk for Business. This webinar will also include knowledge sharing from companies with illustrative policies and practices that champion diverse workplaces.
