The @Rutgers_INTL Gender-Transformative Approaches (GTA) Toolkit provides guidance for integrating GTA into communities, comprehensive sexuality education, youth friendly services, advocacy, and institutions, says @jeroenlorist (@RutgersNL).

"Rutgers knows it's crucial to engage men for gender justice, but also that only using this approach is binary & heteronormative. Therefore, we also focus on sexual & gender diversity to ensure the rights of marginalized groups are respected & fulfilled."

-@reyDP from @RutgersID

➡️@renugolwalkar says to effectively engage men & boys, we must frame gender inequality as a societal problem.

"There is not a problem with men & boys that we are trying to fix. The problem is the prevalence of harmful gender norms and power dynamics at every level of society."

Nick Danforth, a lifelong #SRHR advocate who managed the institute that won Roe v. Wade, outlines two priorities for gender-transformative SRHR programs:

1️⃣ Build local management
2️⃣ Demonstrate engaging men is cost-effective through increased data collection

#UbuntuSymposium

Renu Golwalkar, our Director of Gender, Youth & Social Inclusion, says gender-transformative change cannot be measured through contraception uptake or healthcare usage.

"The process is as important as the end goal. We must challenge existing gender stereotypes & power dynamics."

Why is engaging men important for achieving #GenderEquality?

Participants at our @MenEngage #UbuntuSymposium session say that change is more sustainable when all people are engaged, and that everyone has a stake in achieving gender equality because everyone benefits!👏👏

Board Policy on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The EngenderHealth Board of Directors embraces EngenderHealth’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in its work and workplace. We believe that a Board constituted to represent a diversity of life experiences and which encourages and values differing perspectives best enables EngenderHealth to fulfill its mission on behalf of the communities it serves.

It is the policy of the EngenderHealth Board to promote and ensure diversity among its ranks. The Board’s Governance Committee is charged to continually review and assess the composition of the Board to ensure there is appropriate diversity, including but not limited to gender and gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, geographic location, background, sector, and salient skills. The Governance Committee actively engages to maintain a well‐balanced Board and to address any deficiencies through its recruitment efforts.

The Board reaches out in various ways to make public its openings in order to identify and consider the greatest diversity of candidates possible. It also regularly tracks and publicly reports performance metrics on Board composition.
