SSPG understands that gender refers to the attributes and opportunities associated with being male and female and the socio-cultural relationships between women and men. These attributes, opportunities and relationships are socially constructed and are learned through socialization processes. They are context specific and changeable. In most societies there are differences and inequalities between women and men in activities undertaken, access to and control over resources as well as decision-making opportunities. Gender is part of the broader socio-cultural context, which also takes into consideration factors such as class, race, economic status, ethnic group and age.
SSPG underscores that a mere statement of policy and objectives does not ensure the concerns relating to addressing the gender. In of the above therefore, we seek to develop our client’s capacities to have clear indicators need to be defined to evaluate and assess the organization’s commitment towards gender equity on a periodic basis.
