Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Network launches new peer-learning journey

Philea has announced the launch of a new transformative peer-learning journey, organised by the Gender Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (GEDI) network. The initiative is designed to inspire and empower foundation representatives to advance gender equality in their operations and programmes. The programme is open to funders only.

Participants in this new programme will gain knowledge, develop practical skills and network with peers, enabling them to design and implement gender-responsive initiatives effectively. This initiative is crucial as gender equality is essential for sustainable development, peace, and democracy.

The programme will feature an online training series of seven 90-minute modules, combining expert insights and interactive sessions. The modules will focus on both the importance of gender equality and practical implementation, covering topics like funding structures and organisational strategies for gender mainstreaming.

Why participate? 

  1. Collaborative learning: Engage with like-minded organisations and share valuable insights on advancing gender equality, diversity and inclusion within the philanthropic sector. 
  1. Impactful outcomes: Develop actionable plans and collaborative projects that can make a real difference. 
  1. Networking opportunities: Build lasting relationships with other foundations and philanthropic leaders committed to positive social change. 

What to expect: 

  • Interactive workshops and webinars 
  • Case studies and best practice sharing 
  • Access to a wealth of resources and tools 

The Gender Equality Diversity and Inclusion Network is the place to be for Philea members seeking to advance gender equality in their programmes and operations or to learn more about aligning the values of diversity, equity and inclusion in philanthropic practices. It offers an opportunity to collaborate and partner with individuals and organisations sharing these values and vision, leveraging the collective resources, expertise and influence of the members to achieve greater impact.

Foundations at all stages of gender equality engagement are encouraged to participate, with the programme offering a supportive environment for sharing challenges and best practices. Full participation in the series is recommended to maximise the learning experience. Interested foundations can apply to join this transformative journey, aimed at making a lasting impact on gender equality worldwide.

Registrations for the programme are open.

The programme is open to funders only.
