The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) Gender Equality Repository identifies materials and resources that assist faculty in integrating gender issues and awareness into management education in that field. These include, for instance, specific case studies, syllabi, texts, and best practices that assess or otherwise address the roles of gender in various educational and workplace environments. The Repository also lists resources, including search engines, divisions/subgroups within professional academic associations, organisations such as the Aspen Institute’s Center for Business Education, etc. that are designed to help faculty and administrators incorporate gender-related topics into management education curricula.
This publication defines the standard requirements for the Gender Equity Seal (GES) and GES Certification System. The goal of the Certification System is to spur companies to promote, improve on and monitor the position of women in their workforce. It includes a set of five steps that a company can progress through within specified time periods and which results in the award of the Gender Equity Seal after a successful audit. Social Accountability International (SAI) developed the GES Standard and Certification System for UN Women Egypt as a progressive certification system that integrates capacity building. The advantage of the GES Certification System is that it can assist a range of organizations and, by using auditors that already possess experience in conducting a management systems audit, can reduce the amount of additional time required for a GES audit and supplement any existing labour standard programme.
