Hub fully incorporated into the Gender Sector Working Group

Prof. Grace Wamue shares research findings during a past Gender sector working group meeting on Women’s Social Economic Empowerment and Financial Inclusion
The Hub is now fully incorporated in the gender sector working group. The hub was engaged in the Gender Based Violence (GBV) and women in leadership consultative sector working groups, and was represented at the gender sector working groups meeting held at Safari Park hotel, Nairobi. The meeting was chaired by the Cabinet Secretary for Public Service, Gender and Affirmative Action. The working group noted that although there has been remarkable progress in promoting positive social norms, attitudes and behavior that prevent gender-based violence, a lot more still needs to be done. It was also noted that although women are represented at leadership level, a huge gap still remains. These sentiments reiterate the findings of our 10-year Gender Audit trail that revealed a steady but insignificant ascendancy of women in upper management levels.
