New Report: Promoting Gender Diversity and Inclusion in the Oil, Gas and Mining Extractive Industries
Promoting Gender Diversity  and Inclusion in the Oil, Gas and Mining Extractive Industries

At the request of the UN Group of Experts on Coal Mine Methane, The Advocates has undertaken research to examine the benefits of female inclusion and ways to support women in traditionally male-dominated industries, specifically the extractive industries of oil, gas, and mining.

The report demonstrates the numerous benefits that women and diversity bring to industries, including a larger talent pool for recruitment, greater profitability, improved performance, better safety records, and overall economic empowerment to women and communities.

The report discusses government obligations, including laws that prohibit or restrict women from certain employment.

The report also makes recommendations to governments and the private sector to support women and gender equality.
