The equal inclusion of women in economic life is a key driver of economic growth throughout
the world, including the Pacific Alliance countries of Chile, Colombia, Mexico and
Peru. Talent is lost, and future growth suffers, when women do not have the same opportunities
as men to reach their full potential in the labour market. All countries of the world
have work to do to advance the equality agenda, and Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru
have much to do. While girls and women in the Pacific Alliance are progressing on
the path to gender equality and inclusive growth, significant roadblocks remain.
