How Did We Get Here?

Take a look at the key moments in our history of prioritizing gender equality.

Strategic Impact Inquiry

5 years, 350 staff, 400 projects, 24 countries.  What do we really know about women’s empowerment?  How do we improve our work?

People-Centered Approach

We prioritized gender equality in all aspects of the organization, including HR.  We ask every recruit about gender equality while interviewing, and all staff members take GED training.

Create a Movement

CARE counts on all of its staff to champion gender equality, and to work gender issues into the programs they touch.  Our very culture counts gender equality as core and central to our programming.
