To create a world where everyone can thrive, decision-makers must address systemic gender gaps and inequalities across all sectors.
We take a holistic look at the barriers to inclusion and vision for gender strategy in your organisation, and create practical and forward-looking processes based on rigorous research and consultation with key stakeholders. We believe that gender should not be an after-thought or zero-sum game in policy. Instead, organisations, policymakers and beneficiaries all benefit from creating and implementing gender-responsive policies.
Gender-responsive policymaking (1) requires expanding the knowledge and capabilities of decision makers (including policymakers) and project implementers to better understand the barriers to gender equality. We provide gender training/sensitisation, and facilitate the process of equipping leaders with tools to promote more inclusive and gender equitable organisational, public and private sector policy.
Steps that can be taken to make policies more gender-responsive start with educating project implementers, policymakers, and leaders to commit to gender equality by design. This process may be supported by collecting relevant gender data and evidence to identify gaps and inform gender strategies. We also support gender-mainstreaming (2) into existing programs and policies to meet your organisational goals and/or define your vision for gender equality.
The goal of our facilitation towards gender policy is to support your organisation/mission to develop gender-responsive policy based on participation of all relevant stakeholders, to meet the needs of all in your organisation/sector, and society at large.
Join us in creating the tools, processes and systems that put gender equality at the core of your mission, to build a more inclusive, respectful and equal society.
(1) A gender-responsive policy is one that incorporates analysis of the different experiences and unique challenges of men and women, and consequently, the disparate impacts of policy on the different genders.
(2) Gender-mainstreaming means integrating these considerations in policy and programme implementation to ensure equal outcomes for women and men.
