Cabinet sets goal for women to fill half senior civil service positions by 2023

18 2 2

The government decided on Sunday to set a goal for women to fill half of the country’s senior civil service positions within two years, and to allow designating some posts just for women to ensure the target is reached.

The proposal was raised at the weekly cabinet meeting by Social Equality Minister Meirav Cohen, after she discovered that of the nearly half of senior management positions in civil service that were held by women, according to a review, only 11 percent of those jobs were top-tier posts.

“Gender equality, including in senior positions, will improve government work and will be a signal to the business sector, for which we want to serve as an example,” Cohen said before the meeting, according to Globes.
