DR women hold only 30% of manager jobs, earn 20% less than men
Santo Domingo – “In the Dominican Republic women occupy only 30% of managerial positions in business and earn 20% less than men,” said UN Development Program (UNDP) official for Gender, Raissa Crespo on Wednesday.
She said to change that reality a commitment is important to reduce the gap which keep women from attaining equal opportunities with men in the workplace. “When women are discriminated against, society loses as it’s deprived of half of its talent, creativity and intelligence.”
Crespo spoke in the workshop “Management Model for Gender Equality in Business and Organizations in the external audit process,” for Accounts Chamber staff and the Dominican Quality Institute (INDOCAL) to promote gender equality in the workplace.
The workshop RD Equality Seal certifies companies which adopt internal policies and actions aimed at ensuring equality between women and men within their internal organizational chart.
