At PATH, we are a global team of innovators working to accelerate health equity so all people and communities can thrive. We recognize that to achieve our mission of global health equity, we must renew and make explicit our commitment to gender equality both in our programming and in our organizational culture. PATH commits to:

Confirming and communicating that gender equality is central to our mission.
Creating an organizational policy to support our commitment to gender equality and to creating an inclusive culture.
Providing guidance on implementing our commitment to gender equality in our programming

Gender: The socially constructed and culturally prescribed ideas about what it means to be male or female in a specific context at a certain point in time. It refers to the roles, behaviors, activities, and opportunities considered appropriate for males and females. Gender is not interchangeable with women or sex. Gender interacts with but separate from gender identity and gender expression.

Gender Equality: The absence of discrimination on the basis of a person’s sex in opportunities, the allocation of resources and benefits, or access to services.

On this criteria, we follow the policy of PATH, which is the managing institution of the RHSC Secretariat; PATH's affirmative action plan for minorities, women, veterans, and people with disabilities:

Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition's Discrimination and Harassment Policy approved by the RHSC Executive Committee in March 2019:

  • G: Gender equality affirmative policy with specific measure(s) to improve gender equality and/or support women's careers
  • GE: EDGE certified (external validation)
  • A: Stated commitment to gender equality and/or diversity in the workplace (above the legal requirement) but no specific measures to carry out commitments; and/or is an Affirmative Action employer (US Federal funds) but does not state what specific measures are in place to promote equality/diversity; Reporting on gender distribution of staff
  • R: Policy is compliant with law but no more = "we do not discriminate"
  • NF: Not found/no information available
  • ()+: specific mention of no discrimination based on gender identity/other mention of inclusion of transgender or gender diversity
  • NA: Not applicable. For organisations with fewer than 10 FTE staff, we have scored as NA given that we would not expect organisations (nor did we find any) of this size to develop gender, diversity and/or inclusion plans (although we would expect them to be complying with non-discrimination laws). In the future, we would hope to see language in support of equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
