Dear Giving Women members,

In collaboration with Soft-Space, we are thrilled to invite you to our next event:

Operating in challenging contexts: innovation for improved gender equity 

Fragility reflects weakness in the state’s functional capacity to provide basic security within its territory, institutional capacity to provide for the basic social needs of its population, or political legitimacy to represent its citizens effectively at home and abroad,” Asian Development Bank.

Applying conventional approaches to social development in fragile settings and conflict-affected areas may not always be effective given the challenging operational environment. Innovative projects are needed.

Indeed every fragile situation calls for a unique response. Sometimes lessons from one context can be adapted and applied in another context. The aim of this event is to provide insights into “what working differently” means in challenging environments.

Join us for a discussion with our panelists as they share some of their lessons learned and best practices in their work in fragile settings:

  • Ms. Catherine Butterly from Common Threads*;
  • Mr Arndt Soretfrom Humanium;
  • Ms. Marija Muslafrom Empowerment Lab*;
  • Ms. Alison Farnham, from Action for Development*.

*Giving Women supported project

Giving Women and Soft Space members are requested to make a contribution towards lunch and venue costs (suggested amount CHF 20); the fee is CHF 30 for non-members.

Lunch will be served at the event.
Space is limited to 25 participants!
