Guidance note 6-2

Ensuring gender equity in PEPs

The objective of this note is to provide information and insights into public employment programmes (PEPs) and employment guarantee schemes (EGSs), paying particular attention to issues of gender equality. It is hoped that it will stimulate discussion, provide the necessary dialogue tools for ‘en-gendering’ job-creation initiatives, and increase awareness of how gender equality can be promoted within government public employment initiatives.
