Institutional Innovations for Gender Equality

The Gender Equality Certification programme is an institutional innovation to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment. It supports organizations to identify gender equality gaps and improve performance. Participants that meet standards for gender equality receive official recognition or certification.

By incentivizing good performance for gender equality within institutions, the Gender Equality Certification Programme helps promote the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
