Closing Gender Pay Gaps to Achieve Gender Equality at Work


This guidance note on “Closing Gender Pay Gaps to Achieve Gender Equality at Work” forms part of a tool kit to help companies implement the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs). Produced by the WE EMPOWER –G7 programme jointly implemented by UN Women and ILO and funded by the European Union, this guidance note shows how closing the gender pay gap makes business sense and benefits both employers and employees. It specifically aims to support WEPs signatories in prioritizing, establishing and implementing equal pay policies and practices to ensure that all women and men are treated fairly at work (Principle 2). It also offers insights into UN Women’s self-assessment tool on equal pay for work of equal value.
