The Canadian G7 Presidency has identified gender equity as a priority for the G7 in 2018. The Gender Equality Policy Team of the U.S. G7/G20 Advocacy Alliance,
a group of 54 non-governmental organizations, calls on the U.S. government to play a leading role in encouraging the G7 to take the following actions:
- Achieve the target to reduce the gender gap in labor force participation by 25% by 2025
- Launch a Leaders’ Initiative on Women’s Workforce Development
- Ensure schools and workplaces are free of sexual harassment and gender-based violence (GBV)
