The Gender Equality has been established by the General Assembly 2016 and started functioning on January 2017.

Logo Gender Equality

The Gender Equality Working Group (GEWG) has the purpose of promoting gender equality as one of the core values of the Alliance, and to assure the development of the network and its member organisations with regard to the topic.

It will do so by providing educational opportunities for Alliance members as well as awareness rising strategies such as Common Action Days. It will also function as a body that assesses the needs for development of the network regarding the topic of gender equality as well as providing information and tools that can be implemented to address these needs.

Apart from that, it will also support networking with the sister IVS networks in order to join forces and create a common strategy on how to address the topic within the IVS movement.
