Composition and structure of the ILO staff: Action plan for improving the diversity of the ILO workforce

This document proposes a comprehensive and time-bound action plan for improving gender parity and geographical diversity of the ILO staff, and ensuring the necessary breadth of skills and experience of the ILO staff to deliver effectively on the mandate of the Organization. The action plan is set in the framework of the ILO’s Human Resources Strategy 2018–21 endorsed by the Governing Body at its 331st Session (October–November 2017), taking into account the ILO Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work and seeking to support the effective discharge of the constitutional mandate of the ILO. The Governing Body is invited to endorse the action plan (see draft decision in paragraph 29).
