gender action learning process

Through the Gender Action Learning (GAL) process, we engage organizational leaders in a customized, participatory process of co-creating strategies focused both on individual and systemic change. These processes lead to lasting change because they touch people at very deep levels, showing them new pathways for change and getting at the heart of discriminatory systems.

#TipTheScale

ending workplace sexual harassment

#TipTheScale is a campaign to spread awareness about sexual harassment in the workplace and trigger collective action among individuals to demand and create safer working environments. We believe that one of the simplest paths to deep change is for the less powerful to speak as much as they listen and for the more powerful to listen as much as they speak. With this campaign, we aim to highlight the dangers of unequal power relations prevalent in the workplace and collectively #TipTheScale to end sexual harassment.
