Strengthening Women’s Voices means to address power imbalances as well as social and cultural norms that promote inequality. Advocating for social transformation starts within the concerned group itself. This is particularly true for organizations that promote gender equality. While it is not expected that every single staff member becomes a gender specialist, CARE and its partners believe that each staff member needs to have a minimum of understanding of the gender and diversity values and what it means for the organization’s vision, mission and practice. We also belief that every single staff can contribute to uphold and model these values, in day-to-day lives as well as at work.
CARE supports partners in their organizational development and strengthens their capacities to develop and implement innovative programs and advocacy strategies that are powerful tools to promote gender equality.
