Welcome to CGIAR’s

Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Knowledge Hub

The GDI Knowledge Hub is your single entry point to a wide range of GDI resources, including training, toolkits, best practice guidance notes, policies and practices. Here you will find cutting-edge products, developed by CGIAR’s GDI Function, as well as insights and products from external recognized GDI experts, that you can use to advance gender equity, diversity and inclusion in your workplace.

You can use the Knowledge Hub’s search functionality to find best practices, lessons learned and GDI-related data from across CGIAR. CGIAR’s Employee-led Resource Groups (ERGs) will use this space to engage with their members and announce events. CGIAR’s GDI Network share their contact details here. The Knowledge Hub is also a good place to get GDI news and related updates from Centers and Alliances, and beyond.

Launched in August 2020, this GDI Knowledge Hub supports the implementation of CGIAR’s Framework and Action Plan and works to attain our shared vision for gender, diversity and inclusion:

CGIAR’s workplaces are enabling and inclusive. Diversity in all its dimensions is embraced and every person is supported to reach their full potential, so as to drive the engagement and innovation needed for a world free of poverty, hunger and environmental degradation.
You can reach CGIAR’s System Senior Advisor for Gender, Diversity and Inclusion on f.farrell@cgiar.org
