Why do we need Gender-Responsive Event Management (GREM) in IKI Projects?

The IKI aims at implementing a gender-responsive approach to project planning and implementation to prevent gender-based discrimination and achieve gender justice. At the core of many IKI projects is the hosting of events to enable knowledge exchange, conduct trainings or to support policy makers in the field of climate action, adaptation to climate change and biodiversity conservation. Considering that those topics are not gender neutral, the aim of gender-responsive event management is to achieve not only numerical gender parity an inclusive environment for transformational exchange that is just and sustainable. This starts by connecting the event topic to gender, including more women and non-conforming gender identities as speakers, to planning an inclusive event that considers different needs of participants.

The following checklist offers IKI projects tested practical examples and a suggested step-by-step approach to gender-responsive event management: Why do we need Gender-Responsive Event Management (GREM) in IKI Projects?
