The annual IAPB Gender Equity Survey

Around November each year, IAPB surveys its members using a specially adapted version of the Global Health 50/50 survey.  If you are an organisation that is new to integrating gender equity internally (either programmatically or organisationally or both) as a starting point, you might like to do this survey for your organisation. It will identify strengths and gaps and let you know where a good place to start could be.

UN Compact Gender-Inclusive Language Toolkit cover

UN Compact Gender-Inclusive Language Toolkit

Language creates a mindset, which fosters a culture. Using gender-inclusive language does not mean that individuals are ‘de-gendered’.

The aim of the UN Compact Gender-Inclusive Language Toolkit is to ensure that no individual, irrespective of gender orientation and identity, feels excluded by words that are gender-specific or terms and phrases that are socio-culturally associated with a specific gender.
