[PDF] Why gender matters: A resource guide for integrating gender considerations into Communities work at Rio Tinto
Rio Tinto is committed to respecting human rights and addressing the gender impacts of our operations. We recognise the possible human rights implications of situations in which women are being discriminated against, and their fundamental rights violated. We provide guidance to all our operations on how to improve their ability to consider the human rights and gender impacts of their work, and how to develop appropriate responses...[W]e hope that this guide will be a useful reference for Rio Tinto’s Communities practitioners, and for educating our businesses more broadly. It is relevant for employees at various levels – from operations through to specialist areas, such as Human Resources and Procurement, to better incorporate gender considerations into their planning and programming. As the guide is applicable for all projects and sites including exploration, mines and smelters, it will help enrich diversity across Rio Tinto.
