Gender Action

Gender Action's mission is to promote women's rights and gender equality and ensure women and men equally participate in and benefit from International Financial Institution (IFI) investments in developing countries.

Gender Action is recognized for its leading role promoting gender considerations in IFI policies and investment. Whether indirectly advocating gender inclusion to the IFIs through Gender Action's widely cited publications, building the capacity of country stakeholders through training events and consultative meetings, directly engaging the World Bank and other IFIs through public forums, and expanding the networks of partners pressuring the IFIs to be more accountable on meeting their gender promises, Gender Action is contributing to engendering IFI policy and investments.
