Monday, February 18, 2019 2:30 PM

The Advocates for Human Rights has published a new report titled Promoting Gender Diversity and Inclusion in the Oil, Gas and Mining Extractive Industries. At the request of the UN Group of Experts on Coal Mining Methane, The Advocates undertook research to investigate female inclusion in traditionally male-dominated, extractive sectors. The Advocates undertook desk research and interviews with experts to understand these issues. This report sets forth its findings in four sections: 1) benefits of women’s participation in these industries; 2) government obligations in terms of legal and social barriers, 3) corporate roles and responsibilities, and 4) considerations for women in the broader and surrounding communities.

The report can be accessed here.
