Gender Equality policy
The Asia Foundation is committed to advancing gender equality through both its programs and its institutional practices. Gender equality is both an important end in itself, as well as a means to enhance the overall success of our programs, including effective and accountable governance, rule of law and access to justice, inclusive economic growth, environmental sustainability, and regional cooperation. In addition, recognizing the fundamental importance of women’s rights to ensuring a more just and dynamic Asia region, we pursue programs that enhance women’s legal, political, and economic empowerment. We also ensure that current staff and new employees are made aware of this commitment and are encouraged to advance gender equality institutionally and programmatically.
