Project Summary

Grantee: Kayseri Association of Communication Experts, Consultants and Businessmen

Purpose: Young Women’s Participation to Economic Life

Province: Kayseri

Grant Amount: 34.800 TL

Partner(s): Turkish Education Foundation (TEV), Kayseri Branch

Project Duration: 1 September 2014 – 31 May 2015



Women’s labor force participation is quite low in Turkey with 29.8 % as of March 2014. In EU, this rate is 66.3 % and in OECD, it is 62.3 %. Even in Mexico, which has the closest figure to Turkey this rate is 47.8 %. Parallel to the obstacles in getting into the labor market, women also face difficulties in getting promotions and get lower wages for the same jobs compared to men. All these difficulties show that there is a need to take active measures for women at a young age to ensure their inclusion in the labor market and their promotion at the workplace.
