Abstract


Given the presence of women in jobs that are less prone to benefits, it is natural for organizations to seek to encourage gender equity. Of particular note is the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP) initiative, developed by the UN. We analyzed the 99 companies based in Brazil whose CEO signed the Declaration of Support for WEP, assuming that WEP signatories have a high level of dissemination of information on practices implemented seeking gender equity.
