Gender Integration

Prioritizing Gender Equality

CARE’s commitment to women’s empowerment and gender equality is based on decades of expertise in dozens of countries and in every development sector. We see gender as a cross-cutting issue that we address in every program to make an equal world free of poverty.

CARE uses a Gender Transformative Approach (program strategies that seek to build social attitudes, behaviors, and structures that support gender equality for people and communities). We do this by focusing on two approaches: women’s empowerment and men’s engagement.

It’s not just about CARE’s history. We work to stay on the cutting edge of gender transformative programming, and are always piloting new ideas and programs.  


CARE strives to share our learning and commitment to gender equality with partners, peers, and donors all over the world. Take a look at our leadership efforts.


We know that simply working with women is not enough. Creating true change depends on working with individuals, families, and societies towards gender equality.
