Join us for a free Webinar on engaging men and boys in policy for gender equality on 20 July.

This session outlines evidence-based principles as guidance for reframing gender policy and understanding the transformation of gender norms in dynamic structural contexts. It draws on two years of work reviewing evidence, compiling case studies across nine themes and synthesising principles for guidance together with researchers, practitioners and policy makers.
