Through the SheWorks Sri Lanka partnership over 170,000 employees are enjoying more equal and respectful workplaces.  SheWorks is a collaboration of 15 leading Sri Lankan companies across a range of sectors which began in March 2018. Participating companies are implementing business solutions that help boost the quality and quantity of jobs for women and men in the private sector, which is good for business, employees, communities and the economy.  

These companies recognize that advancing gender equality leads to better access to talent, higher productivity, more customers, and a stronger bottom line. With leading companies from growth sectors such as Banking, Finance & Insurance, Garments and Apparel, Information Technology, and Tourism, SheWorks companies are paving the way for Sri Lanka’s private sector to become more gender equal.  

The partnership will conclude by mid-2020 where the business case results would be published at a sector and group level.

The program was designed for the SheWorks members to address the following: 

1.    Increase women in leadership 
2.    Recruit, promote and retain women in the workplace 
3.    Tackle employer-supported childcare 
4.    Build respectful and supportive workplaces
5.    Support women in the value chain
6.    Encourage leaders to walk the talk – gender-smart business strategy
