who: the International Labour Organisation (ILO) is the UN specialised agency which seeks the promotion of social justice and internationally recognised human and labour rights. Since its establishment, the ILO has focused on workplace issues, actively seeking to create decent work for all - work which is freely chosen and performed in an environment of equity, security and human dignity.

what: the ILO conducts research into a wide range of issues in the ever changing world of work and publishes the results in the form of timely and authoritative publications, reports, training manuals, CD-ROMs, videos and e-books. ILO research contributes to enhancing public awareness of crucial labour and employment issues in subject areas such as, among others, “Gender Issues” and “Women at Work”.

biz-women kit: recently published, the “GET Ahead for Women in Enterprise Training Package and Resource Kit” (ISBN 92-2-115807-1)promotes enterprise development among women in poverty who want to start or are already engaged in small-scale business. It differs from conventional training materials in that it highlights entrepreneurial skills from a gender perspective, whether applied to starting or improving an individual, family or group business.

sustainability features: it addresses the practical and strategic needs of low-income women in enterprise by strengthening their basic business and people management skills. It shows women how to develop their personal entrepreneurial traits and obtain support through groups, networks and institutions dealing with enterprise development. Designed as a structured set of modules with practical ‘learning-by-doing’ exercises, it highlights business development and gender relations. It brings together sources and ideas for exercises that have proven effective and appropriate for both low-income women with little formal education and for top managers in the public and private sectors.
