Turkey -Poor quality for women employment -November 25, 2013

Trade union confederation DISK has commented on recent statistical analyses regarding women’s participation on the labour market. All indicators show that women’s participation in the work force and employment is rising year by year. Women’s economic independency is in progress but despite quantitative developments, a qualitative jump can be questioned. A report on the rate of participation from women and men in companies’ executive boards based on research conducted among 3002 chair persons in 427 companies showed that only 8.5% of board members are women. While the female director rate in supervision committees is 8.2%, the rate of female directors is 7% in corporate management committees.
