Gender shapes and reinforces power relations between and among different groups. At Yarrow, wee recognize that gender inequality is produced through other forms of oppression such as racism, colonialism, and capitalism, and maintained by existing power relations. Our insights into gender inequality apply an intersectional approach, exposing the dynamics that occur as gender identity interacts or overlaps with other identity markers such as race, socioeconomic status, culture or ethnicity, creating multiple layers of marginalization and discrimination.
To achieve gender equality, we must simultaneously address access to economic, social, and environmental resources. This means focusing on non-capitalist relationships in global and planetary health including rethinking the way civil society and governments interact, how we lead and run our organizations and how to best integrate policy and practice. We offer support in gender mainstreaming public and private sector projects, as well as gender impact analysis and gender responsive evaluation of health and environmental interventions.
