The last 10 months (June 2011-March 2012) has seen FBF launch its plan and join the bandwagon of equality in the process of Organizational Change Pro-Gender Equity.


During these months, the Internal Group on Gender has led the process, and FBF will publish "Gender Diagnosis from the Felix Foundation, Baltistan" and "Gender Action Plan" on the website at the end of April. The team which has made this possible comprises thirteen people (men and women,) from different areas of the Foundation: volunteers, technical staff, board, team coordination, communication, grant students and students on practical experience. In addition, to give wings to the process, FBF has been able to count on the facilitation of the Management Team from the communication consultancy UNA, led by Akaitz and Ainhoa.



Through the various working sessions during this period, it has been possible to make a 5 goal Gender Action Plan for the future.  Its implementation will allow the integration of gender perspective in all parts of the FBF cultural organization plans.

In the month of February, an open day was held on "Self FBF gender," which defined and prioritized the way forward for the development of the Plan.  In June 2011, the process began with two awareness sessions which were intended to adopt common concepts about gender equity.  The institutional documents, the formal structure, the activities, projects and programs, and organizational culture of FBF were all analysed from the perspective of gender.



The first part of this organizational change on pro-gender equality has been a success: now we have to start the execution, so that change becomes a reality.
