CREATING VALUE THROUGH
Looking at issues through an intersectional lens is key to unlock the competitive advantages of gender equality.
We tailor our workshops to our client’s needs. If your organization is new to gender mainstreaming, we recommend a 4h workshop for groups of 15-20 people.
The case for gender-responsive road maintenance.
Karlskoga (Sweden) is one of the first cities in the world to find that women's and men's travel patterns affect how they benefit from road maintenance services.
While men tend to drive to work and back, women take public transportation multiple times per day. Not only to work, but to drop off children at school, take care of elder relatives, buy groceries, and more. Globally, women are responsible for 75% of the world's unpaid household and care work, and this affects how they travel.
When streets are covered in snow, pedestrians - a majority of which are women - have a harder time getting around. In 2011, Karlskoga changed its road maintenance services to prioritize pedestrian areas, which led to a decrease in pedestrian accidents, especially among older women. As the number of accidents declined, Karlskoga spent less on healthcare bills and gained more productivity hours.
