How we work

Our approach to work is collaborative, democratic and innovative. We embrace diversity and are responsive to the needs of our audiences. We are committed to communicating complex ideas in an accessible way, and to providing open access to our products. We are driven by an awareness and analysis of power dynamics and the belief that we can make a difference.

BRIDGE believes in the power of partnerships and seeks to provide opportunities for mutual learning and development.  BRIDGE works with partners to achieve several aims, including:

  • Sourcing and sharing gender relevant multilingual information
  • Synthesising gender knowledge in ways that are nuanced and sensitive to context
  • Identifying cutting edge topics and materials
  • Identifying gaps in research
  • Mapping and highlighting innovative examples of good practice that transform gender dynamics
  • Supporting policy advocacy efforts on gender equality and women’s rights
  • Facilitating and building networks, working groups and communities of practice and creating spaces for dialogue
  • Addressing language barriers for non English-speaking audiences
  • Facilitating the inclusion of gender debates in other languages into English discussions and debates
  • Broadening dissemination, identifying target audiences and increasing the impact of BRIDGE outputs

BRIDGE is part of and works closely with several gender and development organisations and networks. We have observer status for the OECD DAC Gendernet and are members of the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID).
