The Partnership for Gender Equity is developing an Engagement Guide about gender equity for the coffee value chain. The Guide will provide tools for industry actors to engage in the conversation about gender equity and identify step-by-step actions to support gender equity in their own organizations and with supply chain partners. Industry actors are invited to collaborate with PGE on this activity to ensure the Guide aligns with industry needs and interests.
The development of the Engagement Guide consists of reviewing literature, interviewing industry stakeholders, and reviewing projects that support gender equity in the coffee value chain or analogous value chains.
The Engagement Guide is made possible with funding from the Global Coffee Platform and is being developed as part of the GCP Collective Action Network ‘Gender & Youth’.
The expected release for the Engagement Guide is October 2017 and will be made available in GCP Connect.

The webinar will introduce the work of the Partnership of Gender Equity under the Collective Action Network Gender & Youth.
