DFID's Gender team, new meetings & new members!
Meeting with DFID Gender Team
In June GADN was invited, along with other UK gender networks, to meet with the Department for International Development (DFID) gender team. The agenda included an update and feedback on DFID’s strategic vision for girls and women, and discussion on the next steps in the post-2015 process after the release of the High Level Panel report. We look forward to meeting and working with the team again in the future.
Next member’s meeting
The next GADN member’s meeting is taking place on 11th July, 10-12pm. We will be looking at the next steps in our Development Alternatives project, and also at plans for CSW next year.
You can download an agenda from our website. Please note this meeting is open to GADN members, but if you are interested in attending and to find out more about joining, please do contact us.
In June we were delighted to welcome International Planned Parenthood Federation and the UK Consortium on AIDs and International Development to the network, and we look forward to working with them in the future.
New membership application process
Following a decision by the Board of Trustees in April, GADN has now implemented a new
application process for organisations who wish to join the network. Members of GADN must support our vision and mission, and we reserve the right to refuse membership or terminate membership without notice if the Trustees do not agree that the organisation’s values support those of GADN.
