A new report identifies 10 economic patterns related to gender and demonstrates how they are material to investors making COVID-19 response and recovery investments.
Criterion Institute, in partnership with leaders in gender lens investing, has identified 10 economic patterns related to gender that are material to investors as they make COVID-19 response and recovery investments.
It is well established that gender patterns have an impact on economic health and growth. Less well understood is how changes in these patterns translate into investment opportunity and risk. The pandemic is having disproportionate impacts on women and girls around the world and these have consequences for companies, sectors, countries, and markets.
Incorporating a gender analysis will enable investors to make more informed decisions to get to better outcomes. It will also enable governments and private investors to structure capital flows so that the sectors and markets we rebuild are more stable and equitable for all involved.
