Enhancing Gender Equity
Africa Centre views advancing gender equity and the empowerment of women and girls as a priority. As a result, gender equity plays a key role in creating lasting solutions to our communities.
We intend to build coalitions of support to advance the lives of our community by addressing gender-based disadvantages while tapping the existing resources within our communities and partners. The approaches include:
Building coalitions of partnerships to promote women’s empowerment;
Collaborating with academics in exploring initiatives that address gender issues among women of African descent; and,
Create support systems that promote women in leadership.
