Dissecting Human Rights Disclosure: Gender
Who’s behind it? – Shift (2020)
How can it help? – This resource is part of a growing collection designed to help investors read and interpret corporate human rights disclosure. In particular, this resource uses excerpts from companies’ reporting on their efforts to tackle gender-based impacts. In particular, it looks at:
- Whether a company’s disclosure indicates that it sees gender impacts as relevant and important for its business;
- Whether a company’s disclosure suggests it has real insight into women’s experience in the workplace;
- Whether a company’s disclosure suggests it is alert to other dimensions of gender-based discrimination.
This may also be a useful tool for practitioners within businesses who want to improve how they report on these issues, and for other stakeholders who are interested in analyzing and assessing the quality of a company’s human rights disclosure.
