Global Gender Parity Initiative’s Strategic Advisory Committee is a network of experts with a background in journalism, development, and economics. Committee members play an integral part in shaping and guiding Global Gender Parity Initiative’s projects by formally and informally engaging in the development and execution process every step along the way - from crafting ideas and providing feedback on project pitches, to selecting our first round of journalist grantees and helping disseminate our work through their networks. Our Committee members are all dedicated experts and advocates who are passionate, just like us, about enhancing the public understanding of unpaid work, and elevating the conversation about valuing and counting unpaid work among policymakers.
