Women's Empowerment

Gender equality and women’s empowerment are pillars of UNDP’s work in Latin America and the Caribbean. Women’s participation in the workforce in recent decades has contributed to poverty and inequality reduction in Latin America and the Caribbean. Women’s paid work has helped to increase household income, including money sent home by migrant workers.

Our Goals

UNDP works with parliaments, ministries, civil society organizations and the private sector to boost gender equality in the region so women can participate equally with men in public dialogue and decision-making and influence the decisions that will determine the future of their families and countries. more
