This document helped me when I was co-writing a funding proposal with a focus on gender and conservation. I especially like this quote: 

"Agency is at the heart of our model of empowerment; it refers to the capacity of women and girls to take purposeful action and pursue goals, free from the threat of violence or retribution." (BMGF)

I also found some really useful references in this document and there is a Gender equality tool box on their website here

WildHub Community Manager, WildTeam UK

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. For several years, I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. These programmes are aimed at building conservation capacity and promoting stewardship. I currently conduct my PhD research on the professional development of conservation professionals and work as Community Manager at WildHub.
