System seeks to diminish gender gap in employment

The national women’s institute and the Instituto de Normas Técnicas  will be presenting what is being called the system to promote equality and equity of gender Tuesday.

The session is in the Hotel Aurola Holiday Inn in downtown San José.

The institute is the same organization that seeks to measure the carbon footprint of companies.

Among those speaking will be María Isabel Chamorro Santamaría, the executive president of the agency for women, the Instituto Nacional de las Mujeres.

An announcement said that diverse studies show the persistence of gaps between genders. The new norm or system will permit organizations to develop policies and take action to diminish the gaps between men and women in their employ, said the announcement.
