Stop gender inequality in the workplace

REGION – Although you have heard statements like – more about appearance and less about work or dedication to family instead of career, you have heard it many times live, you have probably seen them on billboards in Croatia for the first time in the past two weeks. Who did you first think of when you read them?

Nowhere in these statements is gender mentioned, but the vast majority of people think of women first. This was the idea behind the Not OK in the Office campaign, launched by Señor Hrvatska in cooperation with CESI with the aim of eradicating deep-rooted gender prejudices because inequality is not good anywhere, not even in the workplace.

Awareness of the existence of the problem is only part of the solution, but more concrete steps are needed. CESI proposes to change the current Labor Law, which currently protects pregnant women and persons on maternity leave from dismissal for only 15 days – for a minimum of one year after the termination of these conditions. Support this proposal with your signature on and be part of the change or join the campaign by sharing cards, changing profiles and other activism on social networks #sharingiscaring

The action has already been joined by numerous organizations and ambassadors – influential individuals from the business world who shared their experiences and examples of good practice with CESI by promoting gender equality in their workplace.

Due to gender prejudices, women regularly do lower-paid jobs that make it harder for them to advance. On average, they have a 13% lower salary than men and a 22% lower pension in Croatia. They enter the supervisory boards even 12 years later than the men, and when they succeed, they are lonely there: as many as three men for one woman. In addition, every third woman is asked about plans for children when hiring, which is prohibited by law. Examples of discrimination do not stop here, but together we can put an end to them.
