Does your organization need help to:

  • Identify gender gaps that exist, and create plans to address them?
  • Connect with market actors who seek to support greater gender equity?
  • Enhance your efforts by learning from peers also engaged in strengthening inclusivity in their organizations?

 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.
