We were happy to partner with Foraus, Impact Hub Geneva and Think Tank Hub on the SDG Acccelerator #PolicyHack, a two and a half day event aiming to create a space for the development of new tools and innovations tackling gender equality challenges. The event gathered 60 selected participants who picked and worked on one of the 12 gender equality challenges, such as transparency in public innovation funds, empowering future female change makers, women in leadership, women in media, humour to fight gender inequality, retention of young women in the workplace, etc. You can find an article (in French) about this initiative here.
Lift hosted its own challenge about measuring and changing perceptions among the male population. We noticed that gender-based discrimination is often perceived as not relevant to them for a number of reasons among others because they don't experience its consequences first-hand. The goal of our challenge was to find a solution that will involve more people who are not facing direct discrimination in their daily lives to ensure better and more inclusive behaviors.
