Let’s make IT work! How decent work reduces inequalities

Decent work as catalyst for equal opportunities, poverty reduction, gender equality and social change

Decent work is central to achieving fair globalization & inclusive, sustainable economic development. Especially women workers are disproportionately represented in the most marginalised areas of work, falling short of a living wage, facing a gender pay gap & living in poverty. This is exacerbated through power differences between a female workforce and male management & social norms and leaves them trapped in a vicious circle. CARE strengthens the capacity of labour rights actors & increases the voice of female workers, and Südwind connects them with European consumers, advocating for decent work in the garment & IT industry.
