about our working groups
GADN working groups bring together our members around thematic areas related to gender and development. Working groups facilitate joint advocacy, research, networking and knowledge exchange and learning.
Each group has two co-chairs who are responsible for drafting and consulting with the group on an annual work plan, ensuring the group meets regularly, setting meeting agendas and reporting back to the Advisory Group and Secretariat on activities. Meetings take place every 6 weeks – 3 months, depending on the needs of the group. Outside of the meetings, members share updates and resources or ask questions to the working groups via their google group emails, and share resources via this website.
GADN currently has the following working groups:
- Economic Justice
- Gender and Disability
- Gender Mainstreaming
- Girls' Education
- Women's Participation and Leadership
- Violence Against Women and Girls
- Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (email list only)
Members of GADN can join as many groups as they wish. New working groups can be proposed by members and their creation is approved by the Advisory Group.
