Challenge:

Achieving real and effective equality between women and men is still a pending challenge, also in Non-Governmental Organizations.

Between 2010 and 2011 Justicia Alimentaria Global – Veterinarios Sin Fronteras made a participatory diagnosis to detect existing gender inequalities within the organization. During this process, a set of actions and measures focused on the reduction of these inequalities were proposed, but a good part of these proposals for action were diluted in the diagnosis report without being concretized or operationalized, thus hindering its application.

In 2017, Justicia Alimentaria Global – Veterinarios Sin Fronteras takes up this process to promote a new stage with the elaboration of a Gender Action Plan that includes concrete and operationalized measures to reduce the inequalities that occur in the organization.

Answer:

In order to elaborate the Gender Action Plan, it was necessary, in the first place, to review and update the diagnosis made between 2010 and 2011. For this purpose, an on-line tool has been designed that has allowed the technical and volunteer staff to reflect on the validity of the conclusions of the previous diagnosis, and create a participatory space where to discuss and define proposals for action to improve the conditions in terms of gender equality, in the different delegations and territories of the organization. Secondly, a process of systematization, concretion and operationalization of these measures and proposals has been carried out and a series of axes and lines of action have been established to frame them, in order to facilitate their execution. This document – the Gender Action Plan – is the final result of this whole process.
