Welcome to genderbuero
The genderbuero is based in Berlin, Germany. We offer consultation, applied research and training in the field of Gender Equality.
We understand “Gender” in a broad sense:
- Gender is about the social diversity of women and men
- Gender is a system of (more or less subtle) exclusion that impacts on institutions and organisations.
- Gender is an issue that should be dealt with to create equal opportunities and develop the capacities of personnel and systems.
Taking gender equality and equal opportunities into account means …
- considering equality as an integral part of high-quality work.
- actively shaping equal opportunities instead of leaving them to chance.
- taking seriously the goals you want to achieve and the target-groups you want to reach
- focussing on accurate impacts and effectiveness.
- recognising gender-knowledge as part of professional thinking and action.
Taking gender equality and equal opportunities on board are a worthwhile challenge. The outcome can be: better work results, greater staff satisfaction, as well as an increased credibility.
We can support you in designing the appropriate implementation and accompany you during the process. This includes an implementation strategy customised to your organisation, as well as the development of gender-aspects in diverse fields, the development of adapted gender-tools, guidelines, and measures to improve gender-competence.
We follow a knowledge-based approach: based on the findings of Gender-Studies, we help to enrich your work with applied research.
We offer customised gender-solutions for:
- Administrations at the national, federal state, and communal level
- Universities and research bodies
- Institutions and projects funded according to European Union regulations
- Organisations working in the field of Development Co-operation
- Educational institutions
- Non-governmental organisations
