The U.S. mission to India is pleased to announce the No Woman Left Behind: Coordinated Strategy to Increase Workforce Footprint Program.
The goal of this project is the formation of a regional network that will foster women's active participation in the workforce, and advocate for policy changes within government as well as private sector companies to enable a more inclusive work environment.
The project will promote public communication campaigns and a concerted effort by the media fraternity to highlight the issue in terms of challenging mindsets and applauding the long-term economic, social, and health benefits of women in the workforce.
When key stakeholders are convinced of the benefits of women in the workforce, they will be motivated to enact gender sensitive labor laws, corporate strategy, and gender-responsive budgeting at the local, state, and national levels.
