Strategy session


Determine your gender strategy and discover your perspective to make your value chain more effective and gender equal

I assist value chain actors to improve  effectiveness ánd  gender equality in their value chain.

Do you want to become a frontrunner and make your value chain both more effective and gender equal?

Learn now in a FREE discussion with me what are the possibilities to increase effectiveness and improve gender equality.

BONUS: when registering you receive immediately free the checklist “9 steps in getting more women in your training programmes”.

This discussion fits you if:

  • You are not satisfied with the level of effectiveness of your value chain interventions to farmers
  • You want to increase the number of women in your programmes
  • You want women to be equal partners in your value chain

I like to give you ideas how you can achieve this. I have more than 30 years of experience in gender issues in value chains, and I have worked with many value chain actors to improve the effectiveness and gender equality of their value chain.

You can apply for a (still) FREE discussion with me. This discussion takes 30-45 minutes by skype.

In this discussion you will learn:

  • What are your chances to improve effectiveness of your value chain
  • Get more quantity and better quality of product
  • Improve the relationship with your farmers
  • What are the possibilities to make your value chain more gender equal

NB. Are you already training both men and women in Good Agricultural Practices? I can tell you what else you need to do to make your value chain more gender equal.

What are the benefits of the session for you?

  • A gender expert vision on how to make your  organization / company gender smart
