Women in Business and Management: Gaining momentum in Latin America and the Caribbean.

With an increasing number of skilled women professionals, Latin America and the Caribbean is set to become a global leader in gender diversity in business and management. The women’s labour force participation rate in the region increased from 48.5 per cent in 2006 to 49.7 per cent in 2016 – in stark contrast with the decline of the global rate during the same period. The report thus provides clear evidence that more women in the region have made their way in the world of work. The report also shows that the number of women tertiary graduates exceeds that of men in all countries in the region where data is available. Today, many more women are occupying professional, middle and senior managerial positions.

Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines for Project Development, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation, Third Edition

The Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines (HGDG) for Project Development, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation was formulated by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) in 2004 in collaboration with the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW, formerly the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women or NCRFW) and the Official Development Assistance-Gender and Development (ODA-GAD) Network, with funding support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). 

The HGDG was developed to provide a common instrument in integrating gender perspectives in development programs and projects among goverment agencies, donor organizations, and other stakeholders. It has been in use for more than a decade now and it has successfully facilitated gender mainstreaming efforts, including the recognition of the value of GAD checklists. From the eight (8) sectoral checklists developed in 2004, 20 sectoral checklists are currently being used. Since 2013, a number of government agencies have provided resources and developed their own GAD checklists tailored to the needs of their sectors such as the Agriculture and Fisheries Checklist developed by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), Tourism Checklist developed by the Department of Tourism (DOT), and the GAD Checklist for the Energy Sector developed by the Department of Energy (DOE).
