Virtual Learning Journey to Advance Gender Equity
The Virtual Learning Journey is a valuable resource to help with all of the above.
Our Goal is to Ensure Gender Equity Becomes Core to Sustainability
The Partnership for Gender Equity (PGE) has created tools for the industry to ensure that gender equity becomes core to sustainability and responsible sourcing programs – favorably impacting the lives of millions of families.
A key goal of our work is to connect buyers and sellers who support gender equity, and to encourage coffee and cocoa buyers to invest in gender equity programming to support further progress in those organizations.

How does it work?
- As part of a ten week online program, Producer Organizations access an online self-assessment
- Organizations receive their Gender Equity Scorecard which can be used as a tool internally to acknowledge its strengths and weaknesses and to guide the development of an action plan to improve.
- Organizations access free tools and guidance in their language through a Learning Portal that supports them to reach greater levels of achievement over time. The Portal also acts as a Hub for learning and engagement among peer organizations.
- Participating buyers access Action Plan summaries (with approval from POs) through the Buyer-Supplier Alliance and use them to make investments and support action within POs.
