The
Gender-Wise
Toolkit

What else can you do?

Applying a gender lens means more than just considering how your grant-seekers are designing, implementing and reporting on their programs: you can make a significant difference by applying a gender lens to all aspects of your operation.

HOW WE CAN HELP

The Australian Women Donors Network offers a range of services to help you develop and strengthen your gender-wise approach.
