Gender Equality
Practitioners Community

A community designed to bring together professionals from diverse backgrounds who are passionate about promoting and advancing gender equality.

About GEP Community

The Gender Equality Practitioners Community of Practice (GEP CoP) is an IDS Alumni Advisory Committee (AAC) initiative supported by Andrea Papan (MA13), Ennio Rodriguez (MP03, DP81) and Esther McIntosh (MAGov01)

GEP’s aim is to promote a community-led space where feminist practice, pedagogy and research fluidly intersect and IDS-associated gender equality practitioners (e.g., alumni, educators, researchers, partners and invited peers) can openly share both professional and lived experiences, connect with peers, collaborate widely and in diverse ways, and exchange tested knowledge, expertise and resources for social change.

Please remember, this is a pilot community and is a responsive process and living network, which will evolve as the CoP progresses. We welcome ideas from all members, please email Zoe Windsor at

Host Your Own Knowledge Sharing Session (KSS)!

Are you interested in hosting a Knowledge Sharing Session (KSS) relating to one of GEPs Knowledge Agenda 22-23?

This event could include facilitating a panel discussion, roundtable or hosting a workshop for example.

Please fill in this short from letting us know theme you wish to host your event under, your proposed title and learning objectives (these can be changed at a later date if necessary) and a member of the GEP team will be in touch.

Ground Rules

The GEP CoP community is a friendly space, free from discrimination, intimidation and hate. Every member of the GEP community should and will feel safe in this space. We know that every GEP member would never intentionally hurt or upset somebody with their comments, this is just a gentle reminder for you to be mindful when posting in the community.

Please feel free to debate, sharing your own views and opinions while engaging in discussions is what the CoP is all about, but anything considered as bullying or harassment will not be tolerated and you will be removed from the community (again, we know that no member of GEP Community would ever do this!) If something has upset you and you’re unsure what to do, please feel free to contact us and we will support you.
