We use tested and innovative social science, behavioral science and human centered design approaches to improve programs and policies in Nigeria and beyond.
At the PIC, our Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) program is focused on supporting an enabling policy environment for gender and social inclusion; gender systems strengthening as well as gender transformative programming. Our sustainability approach to GESI embeds capacity building, skills transfer, and participatory strategies to facilitate ownership and positive social change.
