Absence of long term monitoring for gender equality

Tue 25.4.2017 11:22 am

Discussions conducted during the internal gender audit pointed out that some changes take time to show their effects (i.e. gender composition at apical positions changes very slowly). The current situation is the effect of choices made long time ago and seeing the effect of the choices we make today will take some years.

The absence of a permanent (quantitative and qualitative) monitoring system for gender equality may bring institution to miss the effect of the long term effects of the current choices. Analysis about the current situation in terms of gender dimensions should be repeated periodically to check the evolving scenario and eventually correct the direction of the steps taken to achieve gender equality.

Rank

Goal: the presence of a permanent monitoring system on gender equality would permit to observe the long term effects of choice over years.

Monitoring activities should include quantitativa data gathering and comparisons with past situations outlining the evolution of data disaggregated by gender and providing a periodic report. The permanent monitoring system should also verify GEP application and the evolution of situations which were affected by gender-related problems. This system would permit to test the effectiveness of choices over years.

The introduction of a monitoring system to monitor progress in relation to the objective of gender equality is certainly a priority action in order to achieve the objective of equal dignity of men and women
