As well as our core activity, Engender also undertakes specific pieces of externally funded project work.
These align with our broad focus while enabling us to work in different ways with partner organisations; to develop materials or evidence that wouldn’t otherwise be possible, and to ensure that gender equality is part of a bigger programme of work being funded across Scotland.
Our current projects are:
During the Scottish Parliament elections, we launched a Gender Matters Manifesto: ‘Twenty for 2016’. This manifesto set out twenty key asks for parties to commit to in the run up to the Scottish Parliament elections. You can see which asks parties included in their own manifestos here. We'll be working to engage with all political parties, over the next parliamentary term to make progress towards women's equality.
We work with women's groups to support them in their activities, whether it's organising hustings at election time, holding discussion groups on feminist issues, or speaking at their events. If you'd like to find out more, contact Alys
We are working with University of Stirling on a project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
This research project is reviewing the relationships between different types of care policy and gender inequality, and identifying how constitutional change in Scotland will affect the options for care provision.
Linked with this is our project 'Making Work Visible'.
