Successful Side Event at the IGF-AGM in Geneva

During IGF-AGM, Women’s Rights and Mining (WRM) organized an event to encourage participants to commit to start working on gender responsive due diligence in the mining sector. The event featured the OECD-WRM Gender Statement, which includes commitments on how governments, the private sector and civil society can work together to prevent gender inequalities along mineral supply chain. It also includes an interactive and engaging exercise that allows participants to experience how gender and other social markers – such as class and age – influence mineral supply chains. Moreover a teaser from the High Grade Media Video Series on Gender & Extractives was launched.

With more than 70 participants the event was a great success.
