GENDER EQUALITY

IT'S ABOUT WOMEN AND MEN

Gender equality refers to equality between women and men. Equality means that you should have the same rights, obligations and opportunities regardless of who you are. Diversity is often used synonymously with ethnicity, but is an umbrella term for different identity foundations. It can be about background, experiences, interests, gender, education and the like. Equality, gender equality and gender are thus part of the concept of diversity. 

ALL THE POTENTIAL

6-year-old Emma has the potential to cure cancer, become a manager and president. But due to structures and norms, obstacles are created on the way. 

Regardless of whether you are a woman or a man, we can highlight the differences in gender in a more neutral way by looking at a child's conditions:

On the one hand, we can observe the injustice, and on the other hand, the catastrophic loss of competence when we do not release the potential of one half of the population.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN AND MEN

Career opportunities for women and men often look different. A report produced by SACO shows that women are trained to develop expertise and leadership at the operational level, while the male colleagues are allowed to learn or grow into strategic assignments.

 

This creates different conditions for women and men to take the next step. In order to take on leadership roles, women often lack the required strategic experience and hit the glass ceiling, which affects the freedom to manage their own career, their salary development and their development curve.

 

CoGig works to change that situation and achieve the vision about the power in business to be equally distributed between women and men. We do this, among other things, through our growing network of women and non-binary engineers and by working with many large and influential companies who think alike.

ECONOMIC GENDER EQUALITY

The overarching political goal of equality is that women and men should have the same power to shape society and their own lives. The gender equality policy has six sub-goals, one of these goals is about economic equality between women and men.
