Tania Del Rio
Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Tania Del Rio is working with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, conducting research on the problem of under-representation of women in the higher ranks of the Foreign Service. She is using Human Resource data to make comparative analyses of the entry, promotion, and exit patterns of men and women in the Foreign Service. In addition, Tania is conducting a series of interviews to gather information about gender differentiation in the work experience of Mexican diplomats. Through this research, the Ministry is looking to pinpoint the causes of under-representation of women in decision-making posts and implement policies that address the problem.
