Gender & Inclusive Security

In an unequal gendered world, the challenge of creating greater inclusion and equality transcends governments, organisations and society. It is personal, political and cultural.

The Gender and Inclusive Security Cluster   works at the nexus of security policy and leadership practice to develop more inclusive policies and practices for more sustainable and resilient peace and security.  We are passionate about gaining a deeper appreciation of the systemic challenges and structural inequalities that create and exacerbate security challenges, and bringing together our diverse community to understand different contexts and co-create solutions through The GCSP Way.    
We integrate a ‘gender and inclusion’ lens into our core security courses, unpack international frameworks such as the Women Peace and Security Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, and offer policy analysis and opinions in writing and in public discussions .  We work with other thematic clusters to identify challenges and opportunities, and ensure a holistic approach.

With the Geneva Leadership Alliance , we advance more inclusive collaborate leadership behaviours and practices for all our community, offering open enrolment courses in Geneva and abroad, as well as more customised solutions to support groups and organisations.  

Our ‘Inspiring Women Leaders’  series of courses, skills-based workshops and dialogue events is designed to support the development of more women leaders in the field of peace and security where they are under-represented.  Participants are offered coaching to help apply learning to workplace challenges, and alumni have access to webinars to continue their learning journey.

Our one day workshop ‘Leveraging Diversity for Increased Performance’  is designed to bring together professionals who are working to better harness different experiences and perspectives and turn tension and conflict into constructive, creative and collaborative engagement.

We welcome initiatives to create spaces for more diverse perspectives to be heard in public discussions, round-table meetings, workshops and interviews.  We have partnered with governments, civil society and international organisations to share knowledge and experience to advance policy, as well as elevate marginalised and excluded voices.  Please contact us directly if you would like to explore opportunities to collaborate.
