Gender Inclusivity in the Workplace
A Practical Guide
The “Gender Inclusivity in the Workplace” Guide is a project that was undertaken by CFRAC to support equality among genders and focus on education as a crucial step towards shifting economic, political, and social power. This project also aimed to increase capacities (knowledge, attitudes and skills) and fill a gap in supporting people and organizations to enhance their practice. This guide uses an intersectional approach that provides knowledge, practical tools, and strategies. The guide intends to help frontline service providers, teams, and leaders in the non-profit sector advance gender inclusion in the workplace.
The guide intends to help frontline service providers, teams, and leaders in the non-profit sector advance gender inclusivity in the workplace.
Some of the main topics in this guide include:
- Gender equity and gender inclusivity: definitions
- What gender inclusivity looks like in our organizations
- How to apply a gender lens to policy, communication, programming, and service delivery
- Practical ideas for challenging gender-based discrimination, sexism, and homo/trans-phobia at work
This guide aims to be an accessible resource for everyone interested in supporting gender inclusivity or simply learning more about gender. It shows how individual lives can be affected by different identity markers such as race and ethnicity in addition to gender. To facilitate the use of this guide, we have targeted both the leadership and frontline service providers. While the focus is on policy and training in some parts, the other section can be used by all employees (e.g., leadership and staff), introducing key concepts and offering strategies.
