According to the Bank’s website, Sourcing2Equal Kenya will help companies increase women’s participation in access to markets via corporate procurement corporate by reducing gender gaps in the supply chain. The partnership with companies will see them each make at least two commitments to advance gender inclusive sourcing strategies. The companies will access best practices and other learning resources through their participation in the Peer Learning Platform (PLP). At firm-level, IFC will also support companies to identify opportunities to increase sourcing from women-owned businesses. To deepen market-level understanding and awareness of the business case for gender equality in corporate procurement in Kenya, IFC will publish research in this area.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
