Throughout this week of International Women’s Day and during the two weeks of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW67), the ILO will highlight the latest on gender equality in the world of work and will host a series of events at CSW67. 

At the first, on Tuesday 7 March, ILO will launch two ground-breaking tools: the ILO Global Care Policy Portal, which provides user-friendly information on national care leave policies and services, and the Care Policy Investment Simulator, which helps calculate the investment requirements, employment benefits and impact on gender equality of different care policies. Find out more on this and all the items and events around International Women’s Day below.
