The tenth Multi-Stakeholders Forum, hosted by Better Work Jordan on August 2 in capital Amman, brought together ambassadors and representatives from government ministries, development organizations, unions and private institutions to deliberate on the latest research findings and policy developments on labour issues in Jordan’s garment industry.

The discussions centred on quality job creation, sustainable and inclusive growth and the need for greater representation for women in leadership positions in the workforce.

Better Work is a collaboration between the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the the World Bank Group’s International Finance Corporation (IFC).

Paths to fostering inclusiveness, boosting productivity and ensuring decent working conditions for workers in line with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8 , were also canvassed at the forum, according to an ILP press release.

Finding ways to promote women to leadership roles, reduce sexual harassment and close the gender pay gap are all elements of Better Work Jordan’s strategy and also part of the ILO ‘Women at Work’ Centenary Initiative. (DS)
