    work to identify needs and formulate programmes
    to help young women and young men find and hold
    decent jobs.

    young people whose gender, ethnicity or
    disability makes it more difficult for them to
    find jobs.

    employment creation.

General Actions for ensuring equal opportunities
  • Provide job counselling for young women through
    employment services through materials and
    training.
  • Develop specific gender sensitive programmes for
    education and training, to instruct young women
    in general education and vocational training as
    well as school graduates and drop-outs About
    how to get a job.
  • Develop specific training programmes for young
    women to promote employment and self-employment
    through micro credit schemes and livelihood
    skills programmes.

6
Practical measures to Promote Equality between
Young Women and Men
  • Measures for equal recruiting
  • Avoid indicating a preference for a certain group
    or sex unless it is clearly justified.
  • Encourage everyone to apply through information
    channels that reach young women and young men.
  • Use criteria, tests and interviews for selection
    that relate to job competencies and are the same
    for everyone.

Practical measures to Promote Equality between
Young Women and Men
  • Measures for the equality at the workplace
  • Ensure respect and a healthy working environment
    free of harassment including sexual harassment
    for all workers.
  • Ensure that workplaces are family friendly.
  • Measures for positive action known as positive
    discrimination or affirmative action are
    practical temporary measures to combat the direct
    and indirect results of past discrimination.

Priorities in training and retraining for Girls
and Women
  • Adopting explicit equal opportunity goals and
    measures in vocational training systems
  • Including both males and females meaningfully in
    the full range of standard vocational training
    programmes rather than providing only
    traditionally female-oriented skills to girls and
    women
  • Revising all training curricula to avoid gender
    stereotyping and to promote equality between the
    sexes

9
Priorities in training and retraining for Girls
and Women
  • Encouraging both boys and girls to enter
    non-traditional occupations in order to break
    existing patterns of job segregation for
    example girls into scientific and technical
    fields and boys into jobs in the care sector
  • Establishing more effective linkages between
    training systems and labour markets so that girls
    and women are trained in employable skills
    alongside boys and men
  • Raising awareness among male workers in
    workplace-based training programmes about their
    role in sharing family responsibilities
