PIDG Gender Equity Action Plan 2021
One of PIDG’s core values is Impact, which we define as having a strong, positive and tangible effect on people’s lives. Fundamental to this is improving outcomes for women and girls. Particularly in the countries that PIDG operates in, a variety of barriers prevent women and girls from participating in and benefitting from infrastructure equitably, and women are also disproportionately affected by gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH). Yet there is growing recognition that addressing these risks and advancing women’s empowerment creates tangible benefits for individuals, businesses and the wider community.
At the Private Infrastructure Development Group, we fully recognise our responsibility to safeguard women and girls across our operations and are committed to empowering women through our investments and to deliver gender equity in the workplace. The PIDG Gender Equity Action Plan 2021 outlines the key actions that we are committed to implementing in 2021 across our group of companies.
Having a Gender Equity Action Plan for PIDG, gives us a road map that allows us to develop our understanding on the issue of gender to ensure that our policies, culture and activities include a gender perspective.
