World University Service of Canada (WUSC) Sri Lanka conducted a study on the labour market policies related to the Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) sector in Sri Lanka. WUSC disseminated the findings of this paper in commemoration with 16 Days Activism and #HearMeToo events this year. WUSC made this opportunity to join hands with other sister agencies to have a collective voice, reflect on different perspectives, and discuss the extent of the problem of women labour force participation in Sri Lankan context. WUSC focused a broader, evidence-based, discussion about “women in work” and to highlight key areas where policy and action are needed. The programme held at Lakshman Kadirgama Institute in December 2018 brought together women leaders in the labour force in different sectors in the society.
