Gender in Oil, Gas, & Mining Conference

March 3-4, 2021

About this Event

The global oil, gas and mining landscape is shifting rapidly. Unprecedented digital disruption and automation is reshaping the opportunities available to men and women working in the sector. The economic fall-out of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is touching every corner of the world with sweeping and differentiated impacts on men and women in oil, gas and mining communities. Meanwhile, global efforts to decarbonize our societies are underway, but with the additional challenge of increasing demand for minerals needed for this transition.

Where does gender equality fit into this picture of a rapidly shifting global oil, gas, and mining landscape? What impacts will a global crisis and potential recession have on progress towards gender parity? These are some of the questions that will be discussed at the second Global Gender in Oil, Gas, and Mining Conference.

The World Bank’s Extractives Global Programmatic Support (EGPS) Trust Fund, the International Finance Cooperation, and the Inter-American Development Bank are organizing the second Global Gender Oil, Gas and Mining Conference to be held virtually on March 3-4, 2021. The conference, under the theme, Getting to Equal in a Changing World will explore gender equality in the oil, gas and mining sectors. The main objective is to share and build knowledge among governments, academia, industry, and civil society on actions that can enhance gender equality in oil, gas and mining.
