The Gender Equality Principles Initiative has collected a robust set of resources to assist companies in learning about and implementing best practices in the 7 issue areas. These resources include academic articles, policy suggestions, examples of corporate best practices, organizational websites, and tools to help streamline change within corporations.

The resources and assessment tools on this website were gathered and developed with direct help from many companies, non-governmental organizations, and individual experts in gender, human rights, labor, employment, and legal issues.
