The Centre entered its second year as a member of the International Gender Champions (IGC), and has adopted its second annual Gender and Diversity Action Plan, building on good practices and lessons learned from the previous year to ensure long-term sustainability.

Key areas of focus were the organisation of and participation in gender balanced and diverse panels, training sessions and workshops; ensuring GICHD staff is equipped with gender and diversity competencies; and mainstreaming gender and diversity through setting individual staff objectives.
