At the structural level, promises to strive for gender equality are sometimes forgotten when it comes to job assignments, promotions or equal pay. In addition, there is the ’natural‘ alignment with the needs of men and too often sexual harassment. But also, the competition between women is not based on merit alone. Too often a young white woman is preferred to an experienced professional from the Global South. Sexism and racism are a widespread reality in the humanitarian sector.

At the individual level, women must balance family obligations with professional development, sometimes make up for educational shortcomings, and face rigid role expectations.

In this safe space, we will address issues of mission safety, how to compile meaningful application materials and develop a career plan. We will learn from each other’s experiences, share tips and build a support network. Also, your anonymised experiences will inform the following peer-learning workshop (“Lernwerkstatt”) on HR in humanitarian organisations.


Ruth Abunaw Besong & Birgit Anna Mayerhofer

The online peer workshop is free of charge. Partner organisations of Global Responsibility’s member organisations are warmly invited to join!
