#CoachingGetsResults: Breaking the Glass Ceiling in the Caribbean

Success Story: Pamela Coke-Hamilton


Ms. Hamilton is Executive Director 
    of Caribbean Export

      "Across the globe and through the ages, women have experienced the disadvantages of existing in a patriarchal framework, which has designated them to a homemaker role, and continues to define the sex as a whole. 
     Women in business are breaking that mould across the world and writing new stories for themselves, and in the Caribbean, the Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) is assisting them through a variety of programme-based interventions."

     "In a recent study by the World Bank, “female entrepreneurs are more likely to operate in the informal sector or in traditional female sectors. This limitation is likely due to “…a number of reasons… a lack of business connections and networks, few entrepreneurial female role models.”

    Over the last 20 years, Latin America and the Caribbean has made large strides to close the gender gap in education and employment. Since the early 1990s, more women than men in the region have been enrolled in school at the secondary and tertiary levels. And today women make up more than 40% of the region’s labor force despite the stereotypes that make those gains difficult.
     Nonetheless, a significant gender gap persists, especially in the higher professional ranks. According toa 2012 report by the IDB, women hold only 33% of the better paid professional jobs in the region."
