The Gender Research Alliance’s core activity is to undertake high quality research and development in the private and public sector. We undertake assignments that promote social inclusion with a focus on gender equality and women’s empowerment.

The Gender Research Alliance was established by three independent international professionals with the expertise and desire to improve the quality and outcomes of gender responsive development research in middle to lower income countries.

We have over 50 years of combined experience working in social inclusion and economic development. With a commitment to gender equality, we have been involved in research and development for private sector growth, gender audits and inclusion strategies and action plans, inclusive value chain development, and inclusive policy development.

Our broad experience has enabled the us to work with all types of organisations such as UN agencies, charitable foundations, government agencies and NGO’s.
