Pullout to accompany the Genders and Diversity Organisational assessment toolkit. Covers leadership, organizational culture, resources and capacities, programme delivery and accountability.
The consultative assessment process culminates in the development of recommendations. These recommendations then are the foundation for the development of the plan of action (PoA) to increase gender and diversity integration within the organisational systems, processes, programmes and services at all levels of the National Society.
The commitment of the National Society senior leadership is crucial to conducting the organisational assessment. From the outset, the National Society’s senior leadership should acknowledge that the assessment will generate recommendations for change and give a commitment to guide and support this change. To obtain senior leadership commitment and approval, it is suggested that a concept note be prepared and submitted to them.
The aim of the Gender and Diversity Organisational Assessment Tool is to support National Societies to fulfil commitments to gender and diversity, while the aim of the toolkit is to provide National Societies with practical guidance to conduct and to follow up on a gender and diversity organisational assessment. The tool and the toolkit can also be used by the IFRC, with modifications.
