Summary

Gender equality is fundamental to the social transformation, as moving the needle in this area has the potential to drive catalytic change in support of the SDGs. The Gender Benchmark, a spotlight benchmark in support of the social transformation, takes a deep dive into how companies drive and promote gender equality and women’s empowerment across their entire value chain to accelerate corporate progress in closing the gender gap. The apparel sector was chosen as the focus for the first Gender Benchmark because of the high number of women workers involved in the operations and supply chain as well as the number of consumers the sector reaches. Learnings from this benchmark will be used to help scope an approach to scaling up our work on gender equality to drive impact across many more sectors and companies.
