LKDF team has received UNIDO’s Gender Equality Mobilization Award

June 20, 2018, Vienna

The gender champions of the LKDF team have received the inaugural Gender Equality Mobilization (GEM) Award from UNIDO’s Director General LI Yong.

The GEM Awards have been presented to staff members and teams in recognition of their exceptional efforts to prioritize gender equality and gender-responsive behaviour in their work.

In particular, the LKDF gender champions have received the award for targeting the traditionally male-dominated fields of heavy-duty equipment and commercial vehicles, as well as forestry, and for developing specific measures like gender-sensitive curricula to support industrial skills training for women in these fields.
