Working Group

To carry forward particular initiatives, we form Working Groups with interested representatives from all entire member body of the Network. The Chair of each Working Group is elected by its members. The nature of Working Groups is of two types: regular and ad hoc. Members of Working Groups work collaboratively to explore issues and action areas in-depth and develop innovative campaigns based on the evidence gathered. These Working Groups are also formed to plan and implement initiatives to mark other activities in the international gender equality calendar such as International Women’s Day and 16 Days of Activism.
