The Gender Working Group organized a breakfast meeting to commemorate the Gender Week and International Women’s Day by inviting staff members to discuss about being a professional woman in GIZ Zambia. To listen to women’s experiences, they had the opportunity to present their thoughts. Afterwards men shared their views. Important issues of discussion have been problems in the corporate culture in terms of being able to combine work and family duties, sexual harassment, availability of career paths for women, the importance of leadership support to gender sensitivity in the company, etc. The participants requested that similar activities would be conducted on a quarterly basis to raise awareness within the staff about gender.
