The Consultation on Gender Equality and Women Empowerment

This consultation with partners in Vietnam will shape the project at national and regional levels. Discussion will take stock of challenges to supporting women's migration and discuss how three core priorities for the project could take shape in Vietnam: promotion of migrant women’s economic empowerment, ending of violence against migrant women, and promoting migrant women’s voice in decision making and leadership roles.

ILO Tripartite Action to Enhance the Contribution of Labour Migration to Growth and Development in ASEAN (TRIANGLE II) will invest across six countries (Cambodia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam) and engage with all ASEAN Member States with the overall goal of maximizing the contribution of labour migration to equitable, inclusive and stable growth in ASEAN. The project is supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australia, and has been designed as a ten-year intervention. Core to the achievement of this goal is the reduction of gender discrimination and the advancement of gender equality. The project will adopt a twin track approach, specifically promoting empowerment of women while mainstreaming gender into all aspects of labour migration management within TRIANGLE II.

TRIANGLE II will contribute to addressing the structural impediments to gender equality and the achievement of women’s rights, and to transforming unequal gender relations to promote shared power, control of resources, and decision making.

The ILO TRIANLGE II project would like to organize the consultation meeting with Ms Rebecca Napier-Moore, ILO consultant on gender equality and women empowerment. 

Time: 9:00am, 19 April 2016
