In June, Rhodes signed a contract for workplace gender advisory services with the International Finance Corporation, a World Bank Group company. 
 
The IFC will provide specialised technical advice on how Rhodes can maximise opportunities for women in its workforce, become an employer of choice for women and men, and prepare it for the world's leading workplace gender equality certification - the Economic Dividends for Gender Equality (EDGE) certification www.edge-cert.org
 
Rhodes managing director Emanuel Papas says Rhodes is further demonstrating its gender equality leadership through the Business Coalition for Women, where it has two women members on the board, Linda van Leeuwen and Kulu Velena.  
 
"We have long been advocating for the rights of women within our workplaces and we employ as many women as we can, including in non-traditional roles such as electricians and forklift drivers," said Papas.
