Gender mainstreaming is an international strategy to achieve gender equality. It is based on the premise that gender perspectives and attention to the goal of gender equality are central to policy development, research, legislation, resource allocation, and to the programme cycle i.e. from planning to implementation and evaluation.

Gender plays a central role in development, as socialization outlines gender developmental roles, and individuals inadvertently apply themselves according to the proscribed dictates which is both limiting and dated. To this regard, women have for the longest time been sidelined in leadership and the policies emanating from it which has often taken a top-bottom approach instead of a bottom-up approach, the result of which stems policies that are gender blind and are non-compatible with gender specific needs and goals. It is necessary that both genders be involved as drivers for holistic development, right from empowering them with education, skills and information to involving them in policy making and implementation.

In lieu of the above, Equip Africa Institute has organized a workshop to evaluate the gender question in development and to address the existing gaps.
