ACFID’s recently revised Code of Conduct places explicit responsibility on all members to recognise, and respond to, intersecting drivers of inequality and marginalisation: including drivers related to gender identity, sexuality and sexual orientation.
In May, the Sexual Rights in Development Community of Practice was awarded one of three cross-sector evidence grants offered by RDI Network and ACFID, to undertake an action research into the specific challenges and opportunities that the revised Code might present for ACFID’s faith-based and secular member organisations.
The research is being conducted in three parts: 1) a literature review & background discussions; 2) a reflection workshop for participants from faith-based organisations; 3) a shared learning workshop for participants from both faith-based and secular organisations.
This workshop represents the second of these parts, and is open to participants from faith-based organisations in the ACFID membership.
We are seeking active participation, discussion and contribution to the workshop at any of three levels:
- internal organisational; and/or
- field-work programming and implementation.
This workshop will be run on Chatham House rules, enabling participants to discuss openly. The event will end with participants developing an agreed set of key messages, to be shared at the final learning workshop for faith-based and secular organisations (you can find details here).
The workshop is free to attend, however registration is essential – click here to secure your place.
