Global Policy on Gender Equality and Inclusion

Plan International's Global Policy on Gender Equality and Inclusion.

Achieving gender equality, promoting gender justice, realising girls’ rights and fostering an inclusive society are core objectives of our work as an organisation dedicated to child rights and equality for girls. 

  • We confront and challenge discrimination and human rights violations based on gender, including gender-based violence, and other forms of exclusion.
  • We also challenge stereotyping and unequal power relations between women, men, boys, and girls to promote gender equality, girls’ rights, and inclusion.
  • We foster an organisational culture that embraces and exemplifies our commitment to gender equality, girls’ rights and inclusion, while supporting staff to adopt good practice, positive attitudes and principles of gender equality and inclusion.
