Mitigating the Risks of Gender-Based Violence: A Due Diligence Guide for Investing

This tool equips investors to understand the risk their investments are exposed to as a result of gender-based violence and to incorporate that risk assessment into due diligence process.

Due diligence is a standard process that all investors undertake when deciding whether and how to invest in a company. This tool is designed to align with standard diligence processes for direct private investments. It also offers recommendations and tools that investors can use to mitigate the risks of violence. The risk assessment is also relevant to public investors at the sector and market levels.

This tool is one component of a broader global effort to ensure the right to live free of violence and toward greater gender equality.
