Gender & Volunteering | Focus group

Genderhood invites people who have experience in volunteering to participate in a focus group on how gender has been integrated into their volunteering experience. 


The focus group will discuss past experiences of participants in the following topics:

– Experience in gendered task sharing.
– Daily sexism in volunteer environments.
– Best practices for gender mainstreaming in organisations’ volunteering activities.
– The response of NGO managers to social changes that bring gender mainstreaming into the panorama.

The discussion round will take place in Athens on 6 October 2022 in two groups: 

Group 1: 13:00 – 14:00
Group 2: 18:00 – 19:00

Interested parties are kindly requested to fill in the participation form by Friday, 30 September 2022. 

The VOLUMEN – VOLUnteering for inclusive Development programm aims to promote and encourage non-profit organisations to gender mainstreaming in all their voluntary activities, through the development of an action plan that will contribute to sustainable gender equality.

The project is implemented by Servicio Civil Internacional and Genderhood under Erasmus+ with EU funding.
