Event Details

How do we promote gender equality in global supply chains? What is gender due diligence and how do we put it into practice? ActionAid cordially invites you to join the discussion during the webinar on our new report: ‘We Mean Business: Protecting Women’s Rights in Global Supply Chains’. The report compiles a variety of cases from ActionAid’s work with communities in the Global South that show that the adverse impacts of business activities are by no means gender-neutral. Based on those cases, ActionAid calls for human rights due diligence that is gender-responsive, next to recommendations to states when it comes to due diligence laws, the UN Treaty, access to justice, and women human rights defenders.

During the webinar ActionAid policy advisors Lis Cunha and Kelly Groen will take you through what it means to conduct due diligence that is gender-responsive. As well as how to include a gender lens in other Business & Human Rights processes, such as the UN treaty. They will highlight the research on cases in Africa, Asia and Latin America that show detrimental affects on women’s decent work, economic rights, access to land, unpaid care and domestic work, and gender-based and sexual violence. Afterwards there will be plenty of time to share, discuss and ask questions.
