Gender and Social Inclusion at the heart of Speak Up Africa

Statement • 08 March 2022

At Speak Up Africa, we believe in an inclusive society in which every man, woman and child is empowered to live a healthy and productive life. This International Women’s Day, we  are taking a stand and commit to further integrating gender and social inclusion issues in our institutional and programmatic processes to contribute to the well-being of our staff and the communities we serve. 

The implementation of this strategy will fuel our ambition to assume leadership and generate conversations about gender equity and social inclusion flowing beyond the workplace, into our homes, and into our society as a whole. It will also empower Speak up Africa to further advocate for gender equality and reinforce the effectiveness of our programs through inclusive leadership to ensure that women, youth, people with disabilities and other marginalized groups are part of decision-making processes.

As an organization that supports Sustainable Development Goals 1-6, our work is rooted in championing action that strengthens voices of the marginalized. Therefore, to ensure that no one is left behind, we will continue to develop alliances and work with partners and governments to build capacity on gender and social inclusion.

Thus, we commit to:

  1. Accelerating capacity building and improve attitudes of staff and partners towards gender and social inclusion issues.
  2. Strengthening  our institutional system to better take into account gender and social inclusion.
  3. Strengthening  the consideration of gender and social inclusion in all programs.
  4. Creating an enabling environment for gender mainstreaming in national, regional and global policies and strategies.

Today, we invite our stakeholders to join us in integrating gender and social inclusion issues in their policies and programs. 

Together, let’s strive for a fairer, more inclusive, and equitable world!
