Gender Equality Advocates Needed
Residents are invited to serve on Cayman's first ever Gender Equality Tribunal (GET), which is being established to support the recently-launched campaign to promote gender equality between men and women in our society.
The GET will hear cases, and make decisions, on discrimination complaints by residents.
As outlined in Part 5 of the Gender Equality Law, 2011, members will be appointed at the pleasure of His Excellency the Governor Duncan Taylor, CBE in Cabinet. GET will be chaired by an attorney, and have four remaining members with qualifications and experience in fields such as gender, social development, human rights and labour.
"This is an extra measure to promoting gender equality, and I encourage all qualified persons to commit to this important national initiative", said the Hon. Mike Adam, MBE, JP, who is the Minister responsible for this subject."This is a great opportunity to enhance gender relations throughout our communities," he added.
Persons who are interested in serving on the GET should submit resumes by email to Gender Equality by Friday, 9 December 2011. For more information on the new Gender Equality Law, visit www.genderequality.gov.ky.
