Business and Enterprises

Only two out of ten  Argentine companies  have  women  in their top executive office despite the fact that almost six out of ten have women in their owning participation and the less than half of the firms implemented gender diversity and equal opportunities initiatives, according to a UN  Women  and ILO report.

The data emerges from the report prepared under the “Win-Win: Gender Equality is a Good Business” programme, a joint ILO and UN  Women initiative funded by the Union European.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) reported in a communiqué that preliminary data from this register also highlight that companies that implemented initiatives in  diversity  and   gender equality   stated that from them their financial benefits increased by over 15 per cent.

The report “Women in Business Management in Argentina” will show the results of a survey of small, medium and large enterprises based in the country, national and multinational.

The program is aimed at promoting gender equality and women's leadership in the business world, an initiative that is currently being developed in  Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Jamaica and Uruguay.
