Advocacy and social change
Advocacy and social change are at the heart of what we do, whether working to achieve gender equality and social inclusion or to ensure universal health care. We know that creating long-term social transformation within societies requires investment in strong advocacy and social movements. Also we know that progressive social policies are influenced by mobilising civil society, changing the political process to include previously marginalised groups, challenging existing gender norms and promoting alternative social norms.
We are creating change by:
Firstly, working with multiple partners to manage complex, multi-country and global social change initiatives
Secondly, developing and managing branded campaigns for social change and advocacy that bring together civil society organisations
Thirdly, partnering with civil society and governments to develop strategic and operational plans, advocacy plans and messaging frameworks based on strong theories of change
Fourthly, building the capacity of civil society organisations and the media to better use and package data to influence political will
Further, conducting innovative research to understand the perspectives of marginalised people and to identify opportunities for social change
Finally, monitoring and evaluating advocacy and social change initiatives to draw lessons from complex processes of change.
