Invitation: OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector - SIDE SESSION 

Learnings and Obstacles : How We Engage for a Gender Lens in OSH

19 February 2024, 10 am CET, 2.30 pm IST, 4 pm WIB, via Zoom

A gender-sensitive lens is needed in the field of occupational health and safety (OSH) - because gender-responsive OSH systems are decisive in improving the health of women workers. But how can a gender lens be translated from theory into practice? And which concrete activities can different stakeholders take? 

Join our OECD side session to answer these and other pressing questions. We draw from more than two years of experience of working in a Multi-Actor Partnership (MAP) for Gender-Sensitive Occupational Health and Safety in the Garment and Footwear Industry.

This panel explores how relevant stakeholders can turn important new insights into practice, sharing different actors’ successes and learnings. This includes questions such as: What are some low hanging fruits? How can actors pin high and attainable goals? And how can different stakeholders be brought together? 

Joining this session, participants from different stakeholder groups embark on an honest and instructive journey towards a future industry where everyone does their part to improve employees' health and gender equality.
