Bangladesh’s ready-made garments (RMG) sector is a crucial driving force of the economy, but women are significantly underrepresented in management, with 95% of line supervisor jobs held by men.

 

Women can make a much more significant contribution to growth, leadership and innovation in the RMG sector if we invest in upskilling women workers, promote safe, healthy and women-friendly working conditions and ensure strong representation of women at all management levels.

We work with women to equip them for mid-management positions and work with factories to ensure a conducive working environment for women to thrive. At the industry level, we advocate for policies to encourage gender equality in management.
