Gender Equality, Disability and Social Inclusion

Even in these modern times, many women still remain severely underprivileged.

Often these women lack educational and economic opportunities, access fair justice and remain left out of political life. Other groups are also frequently marginalised, whether due to their ethnicity, disabilities, social status or other reasons.

Working closely with our partners, Tetra Tech International Development integrate gender and social inclusion strategies into our projects, whether in education, governance or security sector reform.

Using context-specific approaches, we manage projects that increase women’s and marginalised groups’ access to quality security services, fair justice, economic opportunities and healthcare. Our teams help improve the delivery of government services to women and marginalised groups and work to give these groups a greater say in decisions that affect them.

This important work includes supporting changes to government policies, laws and practices, and raising public awareness of issues affecting women and socially excluded groups.

We understand that communities are comprised of diverse groups of people with different needs, priorities and interests. Developing and delivering effective strategies for promoting gender equality and social inclusion is fundamental to creating thriving communities, eliminating poverty, tackling climate change and to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Tetra Tech’s Gender Equality, Disability and Social Inclusion Consulting business works with clients and local partners to design and deliver specific activities, actions and efforts that tackle the persistent challenges and barriers that are holding women and people with disabilities back from achieving their full potential.
