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.

Alongside many amazing colleagues, I’ve responded to Ebola epidemics, malnutrition outbreaks, and set up programs for victims of conflict and violence. I work with communities to try and understand their needs, and adapt our responses to their concerns. I’m used to working in times of stress, intensity, and danger. For the first time since I’ve started this work however, I’m scared of what I’m seeing and what we are...

gender at work-supporting a global workplace

As a transnational feminist network, we believe in addressing deep structures and social norms within organizations and society and strive to build cultures of equality, inclusion, and peace. The perpetual fight for social change and justice requires a continuous effort, especially in trying times like these.

  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.

  8. where we're headed

    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.
