Gender Expertise

A group of women, all wearing face masks, sit together around a table.

CARE puts gender at the heart of all we do.

When we say all, we mean it. Our staff, our strategies, our programs and even how we measure the impact of our work — all of these are grounded in gender equality principles and best practice.

We’re confident our programs are creating lasting change for women and girls in all their diversity around the world because we have the expertise to achieve this and the evidence to prove it. From our Gender Marker to our social norms approaches, we believe CARE has one of the most comprehensive collections of tools, approaches and models for achieving gender equality impact.

We’re also looking to the future — responding to the ever-changing global context and anticipating the needs of the women and girls of tomorrow. Our library of resources is continually growing as our thinking evolves.
