FIC was approached by the Deputy Prime Minister Zorana Mihajlovic to forward to members Recommendations for implementation of the Women Empowerment Principles (WEP) as a response to Covid-19 pandemic. On August 25 Zorana Mihajlovic, who is also a President of Coordination Body for Gender Equality, thanked FIC Executive Director for sharing the Recommendations with members and outlined the importance of FIC as a reliable partner of the Coordination Body. “I believe that your members, as socially responsible companies, will successfully implement the Letter of Recommendation in order to empower women and protect their position in the changed conditions caused by Covid-19”, the letter by DPM states. The Recommendations are prepared within the Gender Responsible Management Project in partnership with UN women and supported by British Embassy, the letter explains. In a letter, DPM drew attention to the vulnerable position of women and their high engagement in the front lines of response to Covid-19. The goal of the recommendations that were forwarded to members is to mitigate the consequences of the crisis caused by Covid-19 to all employees, to decrease the negative socio-economic impact of the crisis and to contribute to a faster recovery of the Serbian economy, it is explained. The Recommendations were transferred to the FIC members mid-August.
