“Tackling gender inequality is a critically important component of many of the programs we support. We won’t succeed in ending the epidemics without addressing the many structural inequalities that make girls and women more vulnerable to infection or impede access to health services. It’s equally important that we promote gender equality within our own workplace.
Being a progressive, fair and responsive organization cannot simply be an aspiration for the Global Fund. We must also be confident that the lived reality for all our staff fully reflects the values we espouse. Becoming an EQUAL-SALARY employer demonstrates our commitment to having a gender-balanced workplace – and this certification provides a basis to build their confidence. It is a milestone for us to be proud.
We are committed to a workplace that embraces diversity, thrives on discussion and is constantly learning.
I hope and encourage the EQUAL-SALARY certification to catalyze our continued evolution as a fair and equitable organization for all” .
