International Women's Day (IWD) 2019

Celebrating Gender Parity at CARE Uganda on IWD 2019

Put the HER in HERo this women's day - We are celebrating all the HERo's in Uganda, from Refugee settlements in the West Nile& Kyangwali to women across Uganda, The resilient women who have transformed their lives with the support of CARE Uganda

Let’s celebrate that, for the first time in 50 years of history and existence in Uganda; CARE has achieved having 50% female staff overall. This is an achievement to celebrate as this result is not accidental but very deliberate. It has sometimes come at a cost, having to accept to delay the start of projects or certain components to ensure we would attract women and have women on the shortlist. It also meant being strategic about our recruitment and selection processes and the coaching, mentoring and supporting of our internal female talent but also our male gender champions, without whom women would not feel comfortable growing in our organization.

Let us continue to make sure all staff in CARE Uganda, women, men, people with disabilities whom we also hope to attract more in the future, with different backgrounds, religions, tribes, sexual orientation, gender identity feel welcome and appreciated in line with our Gender Equity and Diversity values.

As we celebrate International Women's Day, we celebrate our own story of change, a story that demonstrates that with deliberate efforts, gender justice is possible!
