Employment : Minister Advocates for Women’s Advancement in the Workplace

Rabat – The Minister of Economic Inclusion, Small Business, Employment and Skills Younes Sekkouri called, Thursday in Rabat, for the continued promotion of women within companies and the improvement of their situation.

Speaking at a meeting with the theme “Commitment to strengthen women’s employment in the private sector” organized by the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises (CGEM) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Sekkouri emphasized the labor market’s parity, which is seen as a crucial component of economic development.

He also emphasized the significance of this meeting, which provides a chance to hear testimony from a dozen national businesses that have supported the work of women and have put in place unique procedures and processes in this area.

The minister emphasized that this refers to the representation of women in management committees and boards of directors and that these actions seek to create an atmosphere that is supportive of women’s labor and professional emancipation.

In this regard, he has reaffirmed the department’s commitment to enhancing the project by highlighting the trophy of professional equality between men and women, which is currently in its seventh edition and is thought to be a significant effort to raise awareness but especially to recognize the quality actions of these women in steering committees.

To support women’s economic engagement in Morocco, Xavier Reille, the IFC director for the Maghreb and Djibouti, said he was delighted to be a part of this event. He recalled that the female involvement rate in the national economy is deemed to be “poor” and is regarded a loss.

He asserts that increasing the number of women working will significantly increase the economy of the Kingdom and boost the productivity of Moroccan businesses.
