BEES is very concern for establishing the gender aspect in the organization to reduce the gap of discrimination among the male and female staffs. Due to this concern, BEES attempted to undertake necessary steps for mainstreaming gender perspective to promote gender equality within organization culture, structure as well as its core programs and various projects in 1996. In 2007, BEES published a gender policy titled ‘Gender Policy of BEES’ for the first time. After that it was further reviewed and updated.
To enable BEES to work as a gender sensitive organization through gender responsive institutional culture, operations and practices, projects and programs and partnership by reducing gender disparity and inequality.
The main objective of this policy is to increase the organizational capacity in planning projects and programs from gender perspective and to ensure women’s equal participation at all levels. It also aims to create a safe and respectable working environment for all staff specially women.
