Hosted in partnership with the Institute for Law and Environmental Governance (ILEG) and the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB).
EB has directly and indirectly engaged in gender equality relevant to extractives through presentations, research and events. EB collaborated with Association of Women in Energy and Extractives in Kenya (AWEIK) towards hosting the first ever forum in the country and in Turkana County, to interrogate challenges and opportunities for women in Kenya’s extractives value chain. EB and AWEIK co-hosted the forum in July 2018 in Nairobi and in Turkana in September 2018. The forum drew participation of stakeholders from government, private sector, CSOs and citizens. Other efforts have been through presentations for instance during the Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Inclusive Business Forum held in March 2017 in Nairobi and the regional forum on Transparency, Gender Sensitivity and Accountability: Extractive Industry Developments in East Africa held in Tanzania on December 2017.
