Ensuring projects are designed and managed to promote gender equity and inclusion
At Chemonics, we believe that successful development must include the needs of everyone — especially those of the hardest to reach and the most underrepresented. So, we work to design and implement inclusive projects that recognize how people’s multiple identities and the variety of differences that shape their human experience affect program outcomes. We draw from industry expertise implementing programs that integrate gender equality and social inclusion in 150 countries around the world. Our projects consider social and cultural factors — like age, ability, geographic location, ethnic and religious identities, sexual identity, and economic status — to inform analysis, program design, implementation, and monitoring, evaluation, and learning methods. We also integrate safeguarding measures into our programs to protect people from unintended harm, such as preventing and responding to sexual harassment, exploitation, and abuse; gender-based violence; trafficking in persons; child abuse, and other forms of abuse. Our network of specialists is committed to upholding Chemonics’ global goals to advance gender equity and equality and social inclusion through our work around the world.
