SOGI Task Force
The Leadership group on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) has been established to serve as an institutional resource for World Bank Group country teams and senior management. It includes representatives from several Global Practices. The group aims to foster a coherent WBG approach to exclusion on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity by playing a leadership role on knowledge generation and dissemination and encouraging the application of relevant knowledge in operational settings. The Leadership group is also called upon to play an internal and external advocacy role on the impact of exclusion on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity on the World Bank Group's twin goals of eliminating extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity. 

Members of the task force include: Maninder Gill, Clifton Cortez, Caren Grown, Jeffrey Waite, Renaud Seligmann, Robert Oelrichs, Fernando Montenegro Torres, Ulrich Zachau, Nicholas Menzies, Maria Beatriz Orlando, and Jimena Garrote.
