IFC celebrates the champions of gender parity in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka’s gender equality has barely evolved from where it was three decades ago. This must change for Sri Lanka’s economy to realise its full potential and this entails maximising the potential of both women and men. Gender parity in Sri Lanka could raise the gross domestic product (GDP) by as much as 20%.
The International Finance Corporation’s SheWorks programme works with businesses to identify gender-smart business solutions that generate opportunities for women and men.
The SheWorks partnership celebrates 16 trailblazing ambassadors of the programme who discuss the benefits their organisations will enjoy by having an equal number of women and men, and what that means for the future of the workplace with women as leaders.
