The Gender Equality theme is targeted towards applicants who are dedicated to advancing gender equality and women’s leadership through initiatives, policy making, public advocacy and more.
Examples of what this might entail, include:
Academics advancing research and scholarship on women’s economic justice and rights, gender studies, women’s leadership, etc.
Advocacy and policy groups aligning and disseminating messages about the impact and urgency of gender equality through the medium of their work
Leaders who aim to build coalitions, governance frameworks, launch new organizations, catalyze new investment mechanisms and more, which will enable action addressing this pressing issue
Practitioners, who are working ‘on the ground’ and on the frontlines of this issue in communities globally, and whose work necessitates an environment for deep thinking on approaches and avenues to impact
We welcome a diverse range of profiles for applicants in this theme. However, all Gender Equality applications will be required to address the theme in a direct and deliberate way.
Applications for ’23 are currently closed. Please look for announcements about future application rounds, in early ’23.
