What is gender lens investing?
Gender lens investing, GLI for its acronym in English, is the process that incorporates a gender analysis in the investment process to ensure that the injected capital not only generates financial returns but also contributes to achieving greater equality and closing gaps.”
This approach is proven to improve investment results and make companies more profitable, further affirming the premise that women are agents of change.
This mechanism is a unique opportunity that can boost the economic development of the region and reduce gender inequalities since it focuses on investment in companies that are owned by women or directed by women, have internal policies and practices that promote gender diversity within of the workplace, offer products and/or services that are designed to meet the specific needs of women or girls and that promote equality in their value chain.
