Kenya Sugar Board Awarded trophy for Gender and Disability Mainstreaming

The Kenya Sugar Board was awarded a trophy for having met the highest standards of excellence in Gender representation. This was during the National Gender and Disability Mainstreaming award ceremony at the Laico Regency on 20th September 2012.

The colorful event which brought together representatives from public and private institutions was organized by the Gender and Disability Development Centre, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development and the National Council for persons with Disabilities.

While appreciating the award, the CEO Kenya Sugar Board Rosemary Mkok MBS, informed the participants that Board has taken the initiative of ensuring that we provide an equitable working environment for men and women, with or without disabilities. To achieve the Board has developed a policy in line with The Persons with Disability act, 2003, that ensures the realization of an all inclusive community and empowerment of the Board’s employees with disabilities. Our objectives include: Elimination of all forms of discrimination, Promotion of a barrier free environment for all KSB employees with disabilities and awareness amongst KSB employees on the needs of persons with disabilities.

To promote gender equality and equity, the Board has maintained a favourable balance of both gender in our establishment. Currently our ratio of men to women is 1 to1. This gender balance is equitably distributed at the different levels of management.

Being the apex body of the sugar industry, we acknowledge the fact that we still have a long way to go, in ensuring gender equity among the sugar cane farming community. Nationally, we are still faced with the challenge of unequal access to opportunities and assets for women among the farming communities, despite the fact that women are more involved in actual farming activities. The sugar industry is not an exception. We at the Board are taking the initiative of sensitizing farmers on the benefit of engaging women in decision making processes on matters relating to sugar cane farming. We are optimistic that the recent legal reforms in our country will pave way for addressing this imbalance not only for the sugar industry but the entire agriculture sector.
