GLOW Red has created a working group to ensure implementation of the resolution and foster the sharing of progress and successes, as well as challenges and obstacles. One of the first actions of the working group was to put together a reporting mechanism (see below) to gather information on what is being done and have been done across the RCRC Movement to support women in leadership positions, to future women leaders, and increase women’s leadership in general. The first reporting period was between October 21st and November 21st, 2021 and a total of 13.4% of RCRC Movement Components reported.
A report has been produced to summarize those answers and highlight some of the efforts being done across the RCRC Movement to advance women’s leadership. Read the Progress report on the Women and Leadership Resolution adopted at the 33rd International Conference here:
Rapport d’étape sur la Résolution au sujet du leadership féminin adoptée lors de la 33e Conférence international
The Reporting Mechanism stays open until six months before the 34th International Conference and we plan to have an updated report, with additional information, ready to be presented at the conference. To ensure the actions of your National Society, ICRC or IFRC office are highlighted in the next report, please fill out the Reporting Mechanism:
What actions has your Movement component taken towards the implementation of the resolution? What learnings can you share with other Movement partners to ensure a holistic approach to women’s leadership isn’t siloed?
** Note that this is an informal reporting mechanism, specifically developed for the Resolution on Women and leadership in the humanitarian action of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (33IC/19/R5). Formal reporting to the 34th International Conference is done here.
During the Council of Delegate meeting in 2017 the resolution called "Reinforcing gender equality and equal opportunities in the leadership and work of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement" was adopted. Find it here.
