The Generation Equality Forum Action Coalitions are the world’s roadmap for gender equality. These innovative, multi-stakeholder partnerships are focused on the most critical areas in gender equality to achieve concrete change for women and girls worldwide. They will:
Catalyze collective action
Spark global and local conversations among generations
Drive increased public & private investment
Deliver concrete, game-changing results
DELIVERING CONCRETE RESULTS IN SIX THEMATIC AREAS
Each Action Coalition has identified a limited set of concrete Actions viewed as the most catalytic to catapult progress on gender equality. These actions—if implemented and fully funded—can lead to lasting and transformative change.
You can see an overview of the Actions associated with each Action Coalition here.
REVIEWING THE GLOBAL ACCELERATION PLAN IS IMPORTANT CONTEXT TO INFORM YOUR COMMITMENT.
The Global Acceleration Plan for Gender Equality is a transformative roadmap designed by the Action Coalition leaders to advance concrete results in the six Action Coalition themes over five years.
This Plan is poised to accelerate concrete progress on the Sustainable Development Goals.Download the GAP
WHAT MAKES A STRONG
A STRONG COMMITMENT IS DEFINED BY FIVE CRITERIA:
POTENTIAL FOR IMPACT
A strong commitment aims to achieve significant, transformative change. This transformative change is expected to impact women and girls' lives, as well as within an organization, government, company's internal structure.
A strong commitment is resourced by new and scaled funds (clearly expressed and integrated into budgets).
LEVEL OF ENDORSEMENT
A strong commitment is endorsed at the highest level (including high-level representation in Paris).
A strong commitment should ideally be collectively designed and implemented by multiple stakeholders together. You can learn about who the Action Coalition leaders are here. [French, Spanish]
A strong commitment is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound.
All commitments should affirm to be part of a transformative feminist process of co-creation and joint accountability.
TYPES OF COMMITMENTS
COMMITMENTS CAN BE COMPRISED OF:
to support the realization of an action to advance gender equality results.
to amplify and mobilize support for transformative change to achieve the goals of the Action Coalition.
to demonstrate how an action can be translated to concrete policy change in the context of a government, company, or organization.
to deliver programs, services, research or other actions, with a focus on scale.
To support and inspire the development of your strong Commitments, an 'Action Coalitions Commitments Handbook' has been developed by the Action Coalition leaders.
You can check the catalytic commitments announced at the Paris Generation Equality Forum at the ACTION COALITIONS COMMITMENTS DASHBOARD here.
Intersectionality, feminist leadership, and transformation are principles that underpin how the Action Coalitions operate and what they aspire to achieve. All Action Coalition Leaders and Commitment Makers are encouraged to reflect how their work can: meaningfully counter the multiple forms of discrimination that many people face based upon their gender and other factors; redistribute power to groups that have been traditionally marginalized and excluded; and contribute towards changing systems, structures and our own ways of working in order to foster justice and equality. This includes co-creating strategies, programs, laws, and policies with the people who will be most affected by them and ensuring that all partners in this process have equal power to influence its outcomes.
