Report on the implementation of the OECD gender recommendations – some progress on gender equality but much left to do

The OECD Gender Recommendations are rooted in the OECD Gender Initiative, which started in 2010

The All on Board for Inclusive Growth initiative, which launched in 2012; and the understanding that, despite existing policies, as the 2013 OECD Gender Recommendations states, “significant gender disparities and biases nevertheless remain in educational and occupational choices; earning levels and working conditions; career progression; representation in decision-making positions; in public life; in the uptake of paid and unpaid work; in entrepreneurial activities; in access to finance for entrepreneurs; and in financial literacy and financial empowerment.” Reporting to Council is due in 2017, and regularly thereafter, on Adherents’ progress in implementing the recommended policies aimed at reducing gender gaps. This report draws from recent and ongoing gender work in different Committees and the 2016 Gender Equality Questionnaires (OECD 2016 GEQs), which were sent via Committees to Adherents in order to monitor their progress in policy development and gender equality outcomes.
