Gender and Inclusive Development

EnCompass works with clients on strengthening their knowledge and skills to identify and address inequalities that prevent achievement of desired development outcomes. Many people are excluded from development because of their sex, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, poverty, or other socio-cultural factors. Such exclusion deepens inequality worldwide. EnCompass supports our clients—UN organizations, United States government agencies, and international non-governmental organizations—to implement inclusive development that enables all groups of people to contribute to creating opportunities, sharing the benefits of development, and participating in decision-making.

EnCompass’ approach to gender and inclusive development integrates the standards and principles of human rights—participation, non-discrimination, and accountability—and spans a range of program sectors (e.g., agriculture; conflict; democracy, rights, and governance; economic growth; education, energy and infrastructure; health; HIV; and rule of law) and geographies (e.g., Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East).
