We have a new podcast episode: Addressing gender-based violence and harassment

Gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH) is a widespread and serious global issue that affects people in the workplace, their communities and homes. While gender-based violence and harassment can affect anyone, it disproportionately affects women and girls: an estimated one in three women worldwide has experienced some form of physical or sexual violence.

And there is a growing recognition that the private sector has an important role in addressing this important issue. For companies and investors, it can pose a range of risks, including litigation, loss of profits and reputational damage. Addressing these risks can have many business benefits too – such as improved productivity and performance, reduced accident potential, improved access to skills and talent, and improved stakeholder relations.

In this podcast episode, Genevieve Joy from our ESG team speaks to Andrea Cullinan, the IFC’s Gender and Gender-based violece Lead, about these issues and the practical steps companies and investors can take.
