Secretary of Labor Acosta Delivers Remarks on Empowering Women at G20 Meeting

Acosta discussed the importance of investing in women.

According to a news release, U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta delivered remarks at the G20 Labor and Employment Minister’s Meeting on women succeeding in the 21st century economy.

“As the father of two wonderful school-age daughters, I know the vital importance of ensuring that girls and women everywhere can pursue their aspirations, wherever they lead,” said Acosta. “Over the last decade, technological breakthroughs have fundamentally transformed the economy in the United States and the world.

Acosta cited a recent editorial by Ivanka Trump and Jim Yong Kim in the Financial Times that touched on the importance of investing in women and businesses run by women.

“Historically, in the United States, apprenticeships were most common in the construction trades. We are seeking to expand apprenticeships into high-growth, emerging sectors where apprenticeships have been uncommon – and where women make up a larger percentage of the workforce – while at the same time enforcing the right of women to enter the construction trades,” said Acosta.
