Developing a Tool for Aligning Financial Investments with Gender Equity
How might the five dimensions from the XX Factor be used to create financial instruments for supporting gender equity?
The XX Factor identified five dimensions foundational for the lives of women and girls: health, education, economic empowerment, personal safety, and legal rights. For the Women’s Index, CHIP in collaboration with Women of the World Endowment conducted research and analysis of social impact indicators available to inform investment with a gender focus within the sovereign debt space.
The research outcomes are now available and ready to be used for developing a government scoring methodology—a replicable, rules-based, gender-lens score for global government debt, grounded in empirical evidence.
