Employers' organizations

Employers have the right to establish and to join organizations of their own choice with a view to furthering and defending their interests. Public authorities should refrain from any interference which would restrict this right.

Women make up only a small proportion of employers and managers, as a lack of education, training and access to credit have limited their opportunities in this respect. As these obstacles exist and operate within a cultural, social and economic context, employers' organizations ought to focus on:

• encouraging equality in employment;

• increasing the participation of women managers and business entrepreneurs;

• expanding education for work and vocational training, particularly for the educationally disadvantaged;

• increasing opportunities for competitive and productive positions.
