Our 2nd presentation at our annual forum, “Contemporary Women’s Issues,” on 13 April:
Equality, Equity, Parity: Gender in the Workplace
The terms “gender equality,” “gender equity,” and “gender parity” are often used almost interchangeably, though their meanings are distinct. This presentation will: (1) clearly define the terms and their uses; (2) apply these concepts to the status of women in the workplace, including high-level management, corporate boards of directors, and government appointments; (3) review policy-making, both legal and corporate, for more gender-representative workplaces; (4) examine the pros and cons of quotas; and, (5) highlight current examples of such efforts both in Hong Kong and around the world. Finally, why and to whom this issue should matter, and ways to increase awareness and progress, will be explored.
