Gender equality policy
IIED's vision is to create a fair, inclusive and gender-equitable research programme and workplace, enabling us to support fairer, more sustainable development.
That means putting gender equality and equity at the heart of what we do and how we do it.
Our research and action aim to put people first on the environmental agenda. We want to empower the world's poorest and most vulnerable people to improve their own livelihoods while respecting environmental limits.
By definition that must include an ambitious approach to gender – one that critically examines gender roles, relations and dynamics; that transforms the underlying social structures, policies and norms that perpetuate inequalities and imbalances between and among women and men.
This policy covers all IIED employees, consultants, associates and representatives.
