A warm welcome to WildHub Ruth! Wonderful to have you join us! What was the key recommendation from your work around promoting gender-transformative approaches in conservation?

Thank you, Thirza for the warm welcome. To give an overview, below are the approaches that can help promote gender transformative approaches on a project level. 

1. Conducting thorough gender analysis in various settings to understand gender expectations, limitations, and possibilities.

2. Critical Reflection Spaces 

3. Accountability Mechanisms

4. Using Participatory Approaches

The examples of how to implement these approaches are context-specific as gender is a social construct that is defined by social norms and intersects with other diverse factors, including class, ethnicity, social status, race, wealth and sexual orientation. 

Happy to expound more!

Hi Ruth, thanks so much for sharing these approaches! It would be great, if your time allows, to share a case study on how some of these approaches have been implemented. Feel free to write a brief 500-1000 lessons learned post (see also our Contributor guidelines) or, alternatively/additinoally, one of our Conservation Catalysts @Muthoni Njuguna , @Temitope Rebecca Adelola , @Fai Collins Ndi ) could get in touch with you for a recorded interview :) Thanks!
