The ILO Policy on Gender Equality and Mainstreaming, which is operationalized through the ILO Action Plan for Gender Equality 2010-15, supports a two-pronged approach of gender mainstreaming: analysing and addressing in all ILO initiatives the specific needs of both women and men, and targeted interventions to enable women and men to participate in, and benefit equally from, development efforts.
ILO advances gender equality and women’s empowerment in the world of work in cooperation with other UN agencies (WomenWatch and Inter-agency Network on Women and Gender Equality) , including reporting to UN Women on the UN System–wide Action Plan on Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women ,
Action plans are used by ILO to operationalize its 1999 policy on gender equality, which identified mainstreaming as the strategy to promote equality between women and men. The Action Plan 2010-15 uses a results-based approach and is aligned with the Organization’s Strategic Policy Framework 2010-15 and its three biennial programmes and budgets that fall in that six-year period.
