Gender Justice

A gender transformative approach

A gender transformative approach informs all policy discussions and ILC activities, committing ILC to “overcome any practices in its operations or those of its members that perpetuate the marginalisation of any section of society, and in particular of women.” While also respecting the diversity of our members. In order to do so, ILC launched its first Gender Audit in 2017 (available below.)

Promoting Gender Justice is more than an exercise to tick-a-box, and indispensable in our efforts to achieve all our joint 10 commitments to people-centred governance.

In particular, ILC:

  • organises training activities
  • facilitates women’s leadership (both as part of the Leadership Programme and with dedicated facilities such as Women for Women
  • promotes gender awareness and knowledge sharing (for instance via dedicated sessions on the membernet and good practices database
  • supports gender audits and elaboration of gender action plans at members and platform level

IT IS ALSO ONE OF OUR PLEDGES:
