The UNGEI approach
Leveraging the power of partnership
Striving together for gender equality in and through education
UNGEI is a global partnership united by a shared commitment to advancing gender equality in and through education. We provide a platform for coordinated advocacy and collective action in order to break down barriers to education, close the gender gap and unlock its transformative power for all girls, everywhere. For more than two decades we have been championing gender-responsive education systems, policies and practices - speaking out as one and holding the international community to account.

The power of partnership
We believe in collective action to make change happen. Our strength lies in our partnership. By working together to influence global policy, promote evidence-based solutions and the sharing of good practice, we harness the unique strengths of our partners to drive progress for gender equality in and through education.

All UNGEI partners commit to practicing and promoting gender equality and the empowerment of girls and young women.
UNGEI partners agree to develop and promote a shared agenda, to fully realize our collaborative advantage and to share information with transparency.
UNGEI partners agree to be accountable for commitments made, acknowledge and address uneven power dynamics and ensure all have an equal voice.
UNGEI partners are committed to the principle that decision-making must include those most affected, and actions are most effective when there is local ownership and accountability.
