Interview with Tanja Gönner, Chair of the GIZ Management Board
Gender equality is a guiding principle and quality feature of our work. It is an engine and key attribute of a future worth living around the world.
Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment feature prominently in the 2030 Agenda, the new European Consensus on Development and the OECD Global Forum on Development and the European Development Days in 2018. With its Coalition Agreement the new German Government, which took office in March 2018, firmly put its weight behind the promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Thanks to the GIZ-wide commitment, the Safeguards+Gender Management System introduced in 2016 and excellent submissions to the GIZ Gender Competition, we are well-positioned and equipped to actively contribute to the promotion of gender equality around the world.
On March 9th Tanja Gönner, Chair of the GIZ Management Board, and Caren Grown, World Bank Group Senior Director, handed over the Gender Awards to the winners of this year’s Gender Competition in three categories: GG2, GG1 and GM.
