The Gender at Work Podcast is a bi-monthly podcast series, featuring diverse voices from Gender at Work’s international network of feminist scholars, activists, and community-led development practitioners. In our informal conversations, we discuss merging ideas, issues and trends in Gender and Development that help us to find new ways of understanding our work, our institutions, our society and ambitiously, ourselves! By coming together in this new space, we seek to re-examine the resilience of patriarchy and assess the willingness and resistance of organizations and communities to create cultures of equality. We aim to amplify voices crucial in this transformative process of cultivating promising alternatives for a feminist future.

Very in-depth and informative!
Love hearing from people who have worked on the front lines of these movements. Always lots of wisdom in these episodes!
I really enjoyed listening to their Toxic Masculinity episode. It really went into detail about the term and how it impacts today’s society. I never thought that Toxic Masculinity could be different in different areas or communities but this episode really explained it clearly.
