BIC's SOGI Campaign promotes stronger protections for gender and sexual minorities and works to achieve key institutional changes at the IFIs that ensure a more inclusive approach to gender as well as sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). Gender and sexual minorities face discrimination, human rights abuses and frequent exclusion from the positive benefits of economic development. Without strong policies and practices in place to ensure their protection and inclusion, IFIs risk excluding these individuals—often some of the poorest and most marginalized—from benefitting from development and even reinforcing or creating new inequalities in borrowing countries.
