KU-WEE Hub was admitted to sit in the gender sector working group, chaired by the ministry of public Service, Gender, Senior citizens’ Affairs and Special Programmes. This provides the Hub a great opportunity to share gender data with policy makers and advocate for its use in WEE policy and programme formulation and implementation.
We are represented in the National WEE Advocacy Coalition
Stakeholder engagement and advocacy form the core of our project approach, and, in keeping with this, we are glad to be represented in the National Advocacy Coalition on Women’s Economic Empowerment in Kenya. Established by ActionAid Kenya, the coalition aims to streamline bilateral advocacy engagements between the WEE stakeholders and the government. This representation positions the Hub well enough to contribute in the packaging and linking of research evidence to WEE policies and programmes through government engagement. We are represented in the steering committee by our communication and Advocacy Lead.
KU-WEE Hub Project Leader, Dr. Regina Mwatha (far right), and Advocacy Lead Prof. Grace Wamue-Ngare (third left) joined other stakeholders during the launch of the coalition.
