Framework

Our framework highlights the interlinked dimensions of change required to make sustainable progress on gender equality and women’s empowerment.

Podcast

Our bi-monthly Gender at Work podcast amplifies the voices of global gender activists searching for new ways to understand our work, our institutions and ourselves.

Action Learning

Gender Action Learning is a change process aimed at transforming unequal power dynamics, organizational culture and processes to advance gender equality.

Resources

Our knowledge resources include conceptual tools and practices to change the deep structures that hold gender inequality in place in organizations and communities.

Consulting

Gender at Work offers a range of consulting services to organizations to strengthen their contribution to gender equality and work to advance feminist leadership.

Courses

We are advancing the theoretical foundations on gender equality by engaging with universities and organizations to promote research and offer new courses.

our mission

gender equality isn’t a woman’s issue. it’s a human issue.

Gender at Work envisions a world that values and respects women’s human rights and cultures of equality, especially gender equality. We understand that to change systems of power that hold inequality in place, relationships between people, institutions and organizations have to shift.

Gone Are The Days When School Related Gender Based Violence Went Unnoticed

I believed that women were supposed to sit on mats while stools and chairs were for men. As a young boy, I started imitating what I was observing and I used to refuse to sit on a mat. Whenever I was told to go and put firewood in the cooking stones, I would do it hesitantly because I knew it was the work of women and girls....

Teacher Advocacy Is A Key To Creating A Safe Learning Environment for All

The SRGBV initiative had helped me to find my voice again. This learning space helped me and other teachers to reject acts that seek to dehumanize me or others. I hope that as I continue to advocate against SRGBV I will activate many more activists to find their voices. I believe that when the voices of activists come together the vicious cycle of SRGBV will be broken and schools will be free from SRGBV....

The Power of Words in Fighting SRGBV

He walked in with a cane and with just that gesture, the class fell silent. His presence was not only intimidating but also somewhat unsettling. The way he looked at us through his glasses, one felt as if he could see right through your soul and know exactly what you were thinking about him.

  1. mission & history

    How it all began
    In 1999, three impassioned feminists – Aruna Rao, David Kelleher and Rieky Stuart – wrote Gender at Work: Organizational Change for Equality, a book that laid the seeds for this international collaborative. Gender at Work was founded in 2001 by the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID), World Alliance for Citizen Participation (CIVICUS), the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM, now UN Women), and Women’s Learning Partnership (WLP). It was established as a non-profit in 2003.

    What we hope to achieve by 2020
    The work that we do now is crucial for the feminist future we hope to see by 2020. We are committed to expanding our work and growing our network so that more change agents around the world will be equipped with the necessary strategies to untangle deep structures that discriminate against women. In addition, we strive to increase the number of organizations that recognize the importance of changing deep structures of discrimination and informal norms in order to end discrimination against women and create cultures of equality.
