At KIT Institute, our gender specialists help you make sense of gender for your organisation and development programmes. Together, we maximise the impact of your gender interventions and bring positive and equitable change to people’s everyday lives.

Our approach is practical and grounded in knowledge

KIT’s team of gender specialists work on individual programmes to enhance women’s empowerment and rights. The team also helps design ways to include equal rights and opportunities for men and women in longer-term agriculture, finance and health initiatives and organisations. Drawing on 25 years of diverse experience in gender work in international development, we bring solid gender expertise to development problems. Our team includes specialists in gender equality, women’s rights and empowerment, agriculture and natural resource management, financial inclusion and health. In addition to our gender expertise, we bring rich experience in organisational change management, capacity development and learning, knowledge management and applied research.

We leave no one behind

Achieving gender equality and realising women and girls’ empowerment and rights are critical elements of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 5 is central to our work, and gender also features strongly as a theme cutting across all other SDGs. Our work is strongly inspired by and seeks to contribute to the Leaving No One Behind agenda. This agenda calls for deeper understanding and more efforts to contribute to meaningful change for groups that are currently invisible or excluded. This requires an intentional focus on women and girls, and on the marginalized and excluded groups among them.

To this end, we offer a range of services to support organisations in making sense of gender across programmes, projects and institutionally. Key to our approach is to think and act together with you to create a space that stimulates critical reflection and applied learning. Our work is tailor-made to your organisation and sector.
