PIC Gender Foyer

PIC Gender Foyer

The PIC Gender Foyer is an innovative multidisciplinary hub that serves as a platform for capacity development, networking, research, and partnerships to advance gender-responsive policies, programs, and practices in Africa. The Gender Foyer’s focus areas include Policy and Governance, Gender System Strengthening, and Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) Programming.

Policy and Governance

We use evidence-based approaches to support the development and integration of gender-responsive policies. We promote advocacy to advance gender equity and inclusion for women, persons with disabilities, youths, and other marginalized groups through platforms such as the Gender and Inclusion Summit which was conceptualized in 2022 as an annual event to provide an inclusive platform to explore transformative ways to advance gender, inclusion and gender-responsive governance in Africa

Gender System Strengthening

We strengthen gender systems through research, information management systems and sector-specific capacity-building programs for public, private, and development practitioners that equip them with skills to engage on gender issues and implement gender transformative programs. The Gender Foyer hosts the Gender for Development and Gender for Private Sector Courses as well as customized gender-focused
trainings such as the Gender and Taxation Course

Gender Network Africa

The Gender Network Africa is a platform dedicated to promoting gender equity and social inclusion across diverse sectors through partnerships, experience sharing, dissemination of innovative gender approaches and best practice
