Gender Equality Tribunal needs residents’ help

Residents are invited to serve on the Cayman Islands’ first Gender Equality Tribunal, which is being established to support the recently-launched campaign to promote gender equality in Caymanian society.

The tribunal will hear cases, and make decisions, on discrimination complaints by residents.

As outlined in the Gender Equality Law, 2011, members will be appointed at the pleasure of Governor Duncan Taylor. The tribunal will be chaired by an attorney and have four remaining members with qualifications and experience in fields including social development, human rights and labour issues.

“This is an extra measure to promoting gender equality, and I encourage all qualified persons to commit to this important national initiative”, said Mike Adam, a member of the Legislative Assembly from George Town and the minister responsible for this subject. “This is a great opportunity to enhance gender relations throughout our communities.”

Persons who are interested in serving on the GET should submit resumes by email to genderequalit[email protected] by Friday, 9 December 2011. For more information on the new Gender Equality Law, visit www.genderequality.gov.ky
