The action will ultimately contribute to the achievement of gender equality by allowing women to participate in the workforce, entrepreneurship, economic empowerment and, therefore, their full and equal participation in society.

The National Women`s Institute (INAMU), since 2002 and up to date, has been working on the development of a management model on gender equality to close gaps between women and men in employment.
