The Workplace Diversity plan addresses the under-representation of women in managerial and non-traditional occupations throughout the public service.

Managerial occupations for women include all those in the management and professional levels.

The Government of Saskatchewan has adopted the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission policy with respect to women as a designated group for employment equity purposes. The policy states:

  • that all occupations with less than 45 per cent of the positions filled by women be considered under-represented;
  • that the long-term goal be to achieve at least a 47per cent representation of women in each occupation; and
  • that the short-term goal be based on the availability of qualified or qualifiable female candidates.

As of March 2012, 54.9 per cent of the Saskatchewan public service workforce had self identified as women.
