Gender Equity and Social Inclusion (#GESI) Workshop

A two-day Gender Equity and Social Inclusion (#GESI) Workshop was facilitated for twenty-two participants of the Wildlife Conservation Society Fiji and Papua New Guinea programs as well as a partner organisation to equip them with knowledge and skills to implement gender sensitive approaches through Kiwa WISH+ and other projects.

WCS-Fiji Country Director, Paul van Nimwegen said that the workshop was facilitated by GESI Consultant, Ms Anna Cowley who shared her wealth of experience and technical expertise in the area of mainstreaming GESI through awareness and dialogue as foundations for social change.

“Twenty two participants from WCS Fiji, the Fiji National University as well as our colleagues from the WCS Papua New Guinea program are now more aware of gender equity and social inclusion principles in their line of work and will be able to ensure that marginalised groups, including women, children, elderly and persons with disability are not exposed to additional vulnerabilities,” he said. “The interactive space created through the workshop encouraged the team to engage in dialogue and reflect on their experiences in the field,” said van Nimwegen.

“These skills will be useful for the work that WCS Fiji does such as carrying out GESI analysis for beneficiary communities which are critical in addressing equity and inclusion issues in order to ensure that resource management plans are effective and fair for all,” he said.
