Investing in Gender Equality for Africa's Transformation
Published in 2014, this report is prepared under the auspices of the Office of the Special Envoy on Gender of the African Bank Group. The Bank Group’s Strategy 2013–2022 recognises the need to reduce gender inequalities by “strengthening women’s legal and property rights, promoting women’s economic empowerment, and enhancing knowledge management and capacity building” on gender equality. These priority areas, defined and agreed in broad consultations with African countries, form the pillars of the Bank’s Gender Strategy for 2014–2018. The focus of this strategy is twofold. First, it seeks to strengthen gender mainstreaming in all of the Bank’s country and regional operations and strategies. Second, it addresses the Bank’s own internal transformation to make it a more supportive, gender-responsive institution that values its female and male staff equally, protects them from discrimination and all forms of harassment and violence, and ensures a safe and preferred work environment that attracts the best professionals.
