What do toolkit users say?


Alice Darko,

Ghana National Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and TOT Beneficiary of the Canada-IFC LED Program

"Having benefited from training on the IFC Gender Toolkit, the information and knowledge acquired on Tool Suite 1: Increasing Gender Diversity from the Workforce to the Boardroom, and Tool Suite 2: Women-Owned Businesses and the Supply Chain, gave me a broader perspective and enabled me to successfully conduct an important research work on Gender Vulnerability Analysis for a client. A roadmap will be developed based on the findings to help address the gaps and improve gender diversity and inclusiveness in the client’s operations."

Maria Ezpeleta,

Oxfam Gender Advisor, Extractive Industries

"IFC’s toolkit on gender and oil, gas, and mining is a go-to resource for industry, governments and institutions seeking to integrate gender equity goals into extractive industry operations and impact. It provides practical, easy-to-use guidance for optimizing benefits and minimizing harms to locally-affected communities.", on the original IFC toolkit on Gender in the Oil, Gas, and Mining Industries (2018), which served as the basis for the expanded Infrastructure Toolkit.
