No crisis is gender-neutral. The COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing conflicts worldwide, and the impending climate crisis have jointly exacerbated the regressive effects on gender equality – as a result, the eradication of the global gender gap is now set back by over a century.
However, the Orange Bond Initiative (OBI) recognizes women, girls, and the LGBTQ+ community as solutions to these issues, not just victims. Orange Bonds are a new asset class for gender-lens investing (orange being the color of the United Nations SDG5: Gender Equality).
Join us as we discuss the Initiative’s commitment to mobilize $10 billion for gender bonds, the multi-stakeholder approach that includes the voices of the Global South and the 99%, and learn how you can get involved to build a gender-empowered financial system.
