Why Gender?

When half the population is held back from peak potential, society pays a price—and so does business. At IDB Invest, we’ve made an all-out commitment to gender equality and diversity because we know that companies are better equipped to succeed when they can harness the energy and capability of their entire workforce, women and men alike. Greater access to opportunity empowers individuals, furthers development goals, makes companies more competitive and benefits the bottom line.

IDB Invest has now earned EDGE Assess certification status for our commitment to progress in such areas as gender balance across the talent pipeline, gender equality policies and practices, pay equity and other factors.
