Women, people living with disabilities, and other vulnerable groups continue to face discrimination that limits their meaningful participation in society. This is compounded by intersectional factors such as age, race, religion, ethnicity, disability, and socioeconomic status. Nigeria ranks 123 out of 146 countries on the global gender index (WEF 2022) indicating the need for coordinated efforts to address gender-inequality-related gaps.
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.
Our GESI pillars are:
» Policy and Governance
» Gender System Strengthening
» Gender Portfolio Management
