Advocating Gender Balance in Georgia’s Transportation System

15-May-2017

Bus EBRD


PMCG was recently subcontracted by AETS Consulting, under the framework of the EBRD project aimed to support Tbilisi Transportation Company (TTC) to create better access to employment and training opportunities for female candidates and staff, and to increase the number of women employed in all positions, particularly drivers.

Georgia has the lowest levels of female employment in transport in the Caucasus. In order to overcome this issue, a team of international and local consultants will review Human Resource (HR) practices and policies, and assess labor, gender and health and safety conditions at TTC.

Based on the results of the analysis, the team will issue recommendations and assist TTC in the process of implementation.

By the end of the collaboration, a regional conference will be held to share the experience of TTC with other companies in the Caucasus, interested in undertaking similar changes.

Promoting a better gender balance will not only result in better economic independence for women, but it may also lead to an improvement in the work-life balance of transport workers. As pointed out in the Women’s Employment in Urban Public Transport – WISE study, a better gender balance contributes to the general improvement of working conditions for both men and women with positive effects on wellbeing at work, a more balanced culture and thus greater productivity in the company.

As a result of the assistance, the TTC will join the worldwide pool of companies that have demonstrated leadership on gender equality through all 7 of the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) developed by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) and the United Nations Global Compact.
