Gender Analytics should not be an “add-on,” a checkbox or an afterthought. To fully realize the value of intersectional gender-based insights, you need to know how to embed Gender Analytics in everything an organization does. In this week, you will hear experts share how gender-based analysis has created opportunities for impact and transformation in business, non-profit organizations and government policy making. You will see that conducting Gender Analytics is essential in all aspects of work, even in the most extreme budget crunches, and that its application will require transformational leadership and organizational change.
