Initiatives

  1. América Latina Genera is a knowledge and virtual dialogue platform (www. americalatinagenera.org), with more than 500,000 visits a year, that provides analysis, tools, best practices in gender mainstreaming and route maps to members of the development community interested in gender issues. Over 300 people have participated in knowledge exchanges in 2015 alone through this online platform.
  2. Capacity development of regional, national and local institutions Since 2010, each year we have been tutoring over 500 officials in the region using 12 training programmes that include gender equality in the private sector, gender and citizen security, women’s political participation, disaster risk reduction from a gender perspective and gender in communication. 
  3. The Gender Seal certification programme recognizes private and public companies for meeting specific standards to promote gender equality and empower women. By successfully completing the certification process, companies are awarded a Gender Equality Seal that officially recognizes their achievement of gender equality in the workplace. 
  4. Atenea is an initiative to accelerate women’s progress in political participation. In collaboration with UN-Women and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, Atenea was designed to generate dialogue among national actors to achieve political parity through the creation of a national and regional political parity index and national action routes to accelerate progress.
