OHRC: policy statement on the duty to accommodate
"The Ontario Human Rights Code provides for equal rights and opportunities without discrimination. Accommodation is essential if these rights are to be realized. Human rights would be functionally meaningless if the needs of Code-protected groups were not taken into account through the process of accommodation. By making adjustments to the standard way of doing things, organizations are fulfilling their legal responsibility to remove the barriers that prevent people covered by the Code from fully taking part in, and contributing to the community."

OECD Report: The Pursuit of Gender Equality — An Uphill Battle (October 2017)
"Gender inequalities persist in all areas of social and economic life and across countries. Young women in OECD countries generally obtain more years of schooling than young men, but women are less likely than men to engage in paid work. Gaps widen with age, as motherhood typically has marked negative effects on gender pay gaps and career advancement. Women are also less likely to be entrepreneurs, and are underrepresented in private and public leadership positions."
