The Advocates for Human Rights, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA, have published a report on Promoting Gender Diversity and Inclusion in the Oil, Gas and Mining Extractive Industries, which can be found at:http://www.TheAdvocatesForHumanRights.org
“When women are supported and included, businesses do better. But it takes a holistic approach to ensure meaningful inclusion – from changing state laws that ban women from holding jobs to ensuring that companies support women from pre-recruitment through career advancement. Our report describes what countries and companies need to do to support women in the extractive industries as well as the benefits they reap when they do so.”
