The [email protected] online platform is a system of gender equality indicators in companies and organizations (herein referred to as “organizations”)1 that seeks to characterize, quantify and provide evidence regarding the degree of equality and gender gaps that exist between women and men in the workplace. The evidence is obtained through the generation of quantitative and qualitative information about the organizations that participate in the Gender Equality Seal (GES) programme or are willing to implement gender equality policies.
Through the regular observation of indicators, this platform seeks to create an up-to-date and comparable source of information that allows for the monitoring of organisations that are in the process of achieving higher levels of gender equality and, ultimately, reducing gender gaps.
Having a unified measuring system allows organisations to have comparative scenarios at a sector-wide, national and regional level. The periodicity of the system allows each organization to construct active mapping of their own evolution in terms of gender gaps, which facilitates the closure of said gaps by providing concrete goals. Similarly, [email protected], in addition to having comparable variables across countries, constitutes a primary source of information that helps to build sector/industry benchmarks based on sex-disaggregated KPIs to track gender equality in the workplace.
