About the Resource Platform


How are women impacted in global supply chains, and how does that affect your business? Here we aim to provide information about what the potential problems for women are in sourcing and procurement and why caring about these issues will not only benefit women, but also your business. From food, farming, textiles, technology and more there are many ways in which women can be impacted within a supply chain. We have selected publications that will provide clarity as to how women could be impacted, with issues like gender based discrimination, harassment, the gender pay gap, lack of access to resources, culturally based discrimination and fewer opportunities given than their male counterparts. Understanding gender based inequality is a key first step to making effective change.


There are a multitude of strategies and actions that can be taken in order to improve gender equality within your supply chain. Here we have compiled information on how to effectively and efficiently implement real change within your business structure for the better. Furthermore we have accumulated a set of tools based on each of the six steps of the OECD Due Diligence Guidelines, to provide practical guidance on the next step for gender focussed procurement in your business.

Case Studies

We want to go beyond the theoretical and provide evidence to support the need for a gendered focus in supply chains. Here are some statistics, case studies and reports that give real perspective to the issues faced by women in sourcing and procurement and how business can improve when these issues are addressed. Spanning different industries and nations, here is qualitative and quantitative data focussing on gender in supply chains.
