Women continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions across all industries.
Eliminating Barriers to the Realization of Women’s Human Rights
Trade agreements such as CETA have eliminated formal barriers to trade such as non-tariffs, tariffs and quotas. However, women are still underrepresented in international trade jobs. And, women who own businesses face several barriers to international trade entry.
About Genero Y Comercio
Genero Y Comercio as an Organization
We focus on advocating for the spread and support for assessment of the differential impact of trade agreements on women. We also promote the formulation of policies that support social and gender equity when it comes to economic development.
We understand that trade and trade policy affect men and women differently. And some trade policies don’t put into account existing gender inequalities. Gender discrimination also gives birth to negatives associated with geographic location, socioeconomic status, class, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and disability.
Mission and Vision
Genero Y Comercio is the effect of free trade agreements on
gender inequalities and their differential effects.
Our aim is to become a leading online platform worldwide on trade agreements and gender equality, including relevant policies.
Trade policies perpetuate societal gender inequalities
Inequalities just as they interact with the economy. Differential effects of free trade agreements on men and women touch on policies design, assessment, and implementation. This reveals the effect of trade on gender equality.
