Infor partnership

Thank you to Infor

As a chosen charity for the Inspire conference, Infor donated £30,000 to ActionAid in support of their work supporting women and girls living in poverty.

I want to say a huge thank you to Infor for their support and this hugely generous donation to our work. 

Amid existing poverty and global inequality, people in the world’s poorest countries are already struggling with the consequences of several humanitarian emergencies including refugee crises, climate change and conflict.

Now they face an unprecedented global emergency in the Coronavirus pandemic, so your support has never been more vital. From everyone at ActionAid, thank you.”

Ed Tait, Director of Fundraising, ActionAid UK.  

About ActionAid

ActionAid is an international charity that works with women and girls living in poverty.

Our dedicated local staff are changing the world with women and girls. We are ending violence and fighting poverty so that all women, everywhere, can create the future they want.

Our partnership with Infor

"As a native of eSwatini (Swaziland) and a world traveller, I have witnessed a lot.  During my travels I have seen great poverty, with women being the most affected. In places like Mozambique I saw such tragic scenes where females had to fight for work and then having to fight to keep their jobs, and little was done to empower them or help them in their struggles. While a lot has changed for the better, gender inequality is still prevalent in the Global South.

At Infor we lead with a customer-first philosophy which begins with the employees. Happy employees = happy customers. Great things will follow when you put your employees first, and to further support women in the workplace I am a mentor for women in Infor and strive to support them in any way I can.

I support ActionAid because it brings my two worlds together – personal and professional. I have lived it, seen it and am assisting in leading the efforts to support them at Infor. I am happy to support and promote ActionAid as what they do is close to my heart."

- Anne Corbin, Chief Customer Officer International at Infor.

Our report: We mean business

Pollution, land grabbing, exploitation of workers, violence against human rights defenders and other misconduct – multinational companies often manage to avoid any consequences for such human rights violations and environmental impacts linked to their activities.

For women this can be an even larger problem, especially for those living in poverty and marginalised communities in the Global South.

This paper explains why such an approach is needed, and how states and companies can integrate gender-responsive human rights due diligence into existing and emerging efforts in the area of business and human rights.
