Better Work Jordan Gender Strategy: 2021 Progress Report and Update

29 Nov 2021

Achieving gender equality is a key goal both internationally and in Jordan, where the government is committed to closing the gender equality gap by 2030. Addressing gender inequality is especially important in the garment industry, where most workers are women, particularly those in low-wage and low-skill jobs. Gender is an important lens for Better Work Jordan, and the four pillars of the gender strategy (no discrimination, paid work and care, voice and representation, and leadership and skills development) target different areas where further support for men and women is required.

This is the second yearly review of the Better Work Jordan gender strategy. The first, published in October 2020, review progress on the four pillars of the gender strategy through the first half of 2020. This report picks up where the last one left off, covering activities and updates from October 2020 through September 2021.
