Policies and Duty of Care

Duty of Care & Safeguarding

EngenderHealth has developed a duty of care framework and a series of safeguarding and related policies to help build a broad culture within the organization that addresses the safety, security, and well-being of our employees. EngenderHealth takes very seriously our responsibility to make sure our staff, operations, and programs do no harm to children or vulnerable adults, including not exposing them to abuse or exploitation.  To live into this responsibility, we have developed an appropriate safeguarding system and leadership in support of our zero tolerance policy regarding all types of misconduct.

Details about important policies and frameworks that make up our system of safeguards can be found via the following links:

Anti-Trafficking Policy

EngenderHealth is committed to high standards of ethics and integrity throughout all operations, including the prohibition of actions that would support trafficking in persons and procedures to prevent such acts and report any violations. Read the full policy in English or French.

Fraud & Whistle-Blower Policy

EngenderHealth requires its directors, officers, employees and volunteers (each, a “Protected Person”), to act honestly and with integrity at all times and to safeguard the resources of EngenderHealth. Read the full Fraud and Whistle-Blower Policy here.

 


Employment Policies and Commitments

Gender, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (GEDI) Statement

EngenderHealth is committed to working towards a world where sexual and reproductive rights are respected as human rights. In addition to our work toward gender equality in our programs, we are committed to promoting gender, equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace, which includes making sure everyone feels comfortable bringing their true selves to work. Our aim is to provide equality and fairness to all in our employment and not provide more or less favorable facilities or treatment on the grounds of age, disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, color, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation, or any other class or category.

EngenderHealth commits to creating an inclusive and equitable workplace that respects intersecting identities, fosters a sense of belonging without fear of judgement or retaliation, and encourages diverse views that enable employees to bring their true selves to work and to reach their full potentials. Our Gender, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (GEDI) policy rests on the pillars of equity, diversity, and inclusion with gender as a key area of focus. Read the full statement.

Parental Leave Policy

EngenderHealth is committed to providing employees with paid time off to make the initial adjustments accompanying the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a child. This policy applies to birth parents and adoptive parents, including domestic partners, regardless of sex or gender. Country-specific policies vary based on national requirements. In every country, EngenderHealth parental leave applies to all staff. An employee returning to work after use of paid parental leave or use of applicable federal, state, or local mandates covering parental leave will be entitled to return to the same or comparable position.

These policies do not affect the employee’s other forms of accrued leave, including sick, vacation, or personal leave. The employee may use additional days of accrued leave consistent with the terms of those policies.

Details on policies for our offices are available on request to HR@engenderhealth.org.
