Gender Equality and Humanitarian Assistance: Gaining a Deeper Understanding

May 2, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm EDT

Gender Equality & Humanitarian Assistance: Gaining a Deeper Understanding

The Humanitarian Response Network and Canadian Red Cross are co-hosting an exciting full day event focused on advancing gender responsive and transformative humanitarian action. The World Cafe style workshop is expected to contribute to better understanding of best practice, through frank discussions about the challenges, failures and successes delivering gender responsive and transformative humanitarian assistance. 

Please come ready to share your experiences and interact with a diverse set of colleagues from the humanitarian sector, who have strived to address gender equality and diverse needs among members of crises affected communities, including those with differing abilities, LGBTQ2S, elderly, indigenous and marginalised populations. 

Intended Outcomes: 

  • Strengthened collective capacity to have a sustained, positive impact on the lives of women and girls, men and boys in humanitarian crises

  • Partners and the sector as a whole to gain deeper understanding of the scope for gender transformative work in humanitarian environments

  • Documentation of learning and potential action points for the future
