About this Program

The Gender Researchers’ Leadership and Mentoring Program is a collaboration of African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) and the CGIAR Generating Evidence and New Directions for Equitable Results (GENDER) Platform.

The GENDER Platform, through its capacity development strategy, is working towards a world where research on gender equality drives transformation towards equitable, sustainable, productive and climate-resilient food systems.

The GENDER Platform-AWARD collaboration focuses on strengthening researchers’ capacity to influence institutional processes towards gender-equitable and socially inclusive agricultural transformation.Targeting mid-career gender researchers in the CGIAR and partner institutes, the Program seeks to equip participants with practical tools to increase their visibility, gain influence, and accelerate the impact of gender research for global sustainable development.
