Adopting A Gender Lens Across Our Work
Adopting a gender lens across all our work
Dalberg is increasingly striving to adopt a gender lens across all of our project work. In celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day, we share three recent project spotlights from across our portfolio of work, where adopting a gender lens has allowed us to drive value for our clients and deepen the impact of our engagements.

The outputs of these projects include: a guide on gender-sensitive service provision to smallholder farmers, a platform to increase employment opportunities for women in the creative industries, and a set of investment criteria that G7 development finance institutions can use to mobilize gender lens investing commitments and define eligible investments.
