Gender & Equality Strategy Plan

Gender & Equality Strategy Plan

In order to fulfil our pledge to provide Lagos with a top-notch transportation system, we must uphold gender equality, which is a fundamental human right.
The Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) has an outstanding track record in promoting gender equality. With the creation of strategies and policies on equality, LAMATA has significantly expanded the participation of women in senior roles and encouraged workplace flexibility.
We have one of the highest percentages of female direct workers (38%) in the transportation industry, with over 40% of female employees and 40% of management staff as female plans are underway to include more. To guarantee women are not at a disadvantage, it is essential that we come together with LAMATA staff members to promote gender inclusion in our planning, implementation, regulations and everyday operations.
We must keep challenging the attitudes and ideas that are impeding advancement if we are to advance gender equality. We must put greater emphasis on workplace flexibility and use more ingenuity and creativity to remove the obstacles that women face. Even though we have the rules and processes in place, more action and discussion are still required to solve these issues. We have created a Gender Equality Committee to direct this process, and they will help put the Gender Equality Strategy and Action Plan 2022 – 2027 into action. This Strategy aims to aid the Agency’s imitative for attracting, keeping and promoting female employees. The Strategy also aims to deepen organizational commitment to gender equity and to build a greater knowledge of it.
