The world’s largest provider of sexual education, Sundar Pichai Education, has launched a “sex ed” programme for its employees.
The programme is being launched in Singapore, and will be available in the rest of the world in a few months.
Sundar Pachai Education (SPA) is the company behind Sundar, the popular online video site.
The company says its new sex ed programme will help its employees “engage in conversations about gender roles, sexual health and sexuality in their workplaces and communities”.
The program, which is a collaboration between Sundar and Singaporean sex education organisation SESSA, will be based on the company’s existing sex education curriculum, said Sundar in a statement.
“Sex education is a cornerstone of any workplace and should be an integral part of a company’s culture.
This is the case at Sundar where we have partnered with SESMA to create a new, holistic, sex education programme,” Sundar said.
“SESSA is the only Singaporean organisation that offers comprehensive sexuality education in a safe and welcoming environment and we are thrilled to bring this programme to the rest the world.”
The SPA program will aim to reach employees from all sectors of the workforce and to “engaging in conversations about gender roles and sexuality”.
It is also aimed at providing guidance on “safe and appropriate” sexual behaviour.
Sex ed has become a major pension, with the cost of a typical full-time employee rising from $60,000 in 2012 to $75,000 this year.
According to the Singaporean Department of Education, Singaporean women have an average salary of $11,800 a year, while men earn between $42,500 and $49,000.
However, the report noted that the average female earnings have fallen by 16% since 2011 and that women are less likely to enter the workforce.
In 2013, the average male earners earn $31,000, while women earnt $37,700.
The report said the gap in earnings is the only sign of inequality between men and women in Singapore.
Despite these statistics, the Government has fought to raise the number of women in the public sector from 4.5% in 2012 to 8% in 2019.
As of last year, the number of female workers had risen to 6% from 4% in 2012, while male workers rose to 1% from 2%.
In 2015, Singhan, the government agency that sets policy for the country, took the unprecedented step of introducing gender equality as a parameter in its statistical measurement of the labour market.
A number of countries in the South Pacific region, including Indonesia, are also making progress in increasing gender equality in the workplace, though Singkaban, Singapore, and the Philippines have yet to follow suit.
Singar, which is owned by Singapore’s state-owned SESMA, is also part of the country’s Department of Education.
This is part of Sundaram’s dedicated social activities to address gender inequality.
At the end of the day, Sundaram’s goal is to “reduce gender inequality by increasing the number of women in the workforce”, according to Sundara.
