How do we do it?
We use gender analysis to understand the norms that structure relations and processes within institutions and society. By gathering information from all relevant individuals, groups and organisations, we are able to understand the barriers women face in decision-making processes and their consequent access to resources and opportunities. We can then advise clients on a choice of methods to ensure that change is deliverable, owned and sustainable.
Using the latest gender analysis tools, research and methodologies, we ensure that our results are successful and sustainable as they place women’s concerns and needs at the centre of tourism development.
