Today, we're excited to highlight the critical role women play in the sector. Despite women facing barriers to positions and experiencing systemic discrimination, research shows significant progress.

📊 Recent reports reveal a notable shift towards gender in leadership roles across UN agencies and INGOs, with women holding 49% and 61% of the highest-paid jobs respectively. Additionally, the move towards parity is evident on the boards of major INGOs, where women constitute 44% of board members.

👩‍🎓 At the Centre, we've mirrored this progress. From having only 27% female participants in 1998, we've seen a remarkable increase to 61% in 2023.

🔍 While these numbers are encouraging, they also remind us of the work still ahead of us. Achieving gender equity is an ongoing process, requiring commitment at every level of leadership and across all sectors.

🤝 We are committed to fostering an environment of equality, where every voice is heard, and every contribution valued. Here's to continuing the journey towards full gender parity, not just within our Centre but across the humanitarian field.

Our Students’ Testimonial

“Learning directly from real life cases and a vast amount of humanitarian experts - some of whom are now my colleagues - while living in the centre of the humanitarian world, was the greatest opportunity for me. It allowed me to take that big jump into one of the greatest organisations in the humanitarian sector.” Jessica RAMIREZ MENDOZA, Data and Research Specialist at ICRC and CERAH Master of Advanced Study (MAS) graduate 2017-18.

“ The course has helped me not only to acquire new skills, but also to increase my self-confidence as I can apply the tools in my workplace in a more qualified manner.” Lorena BRAZ, Resilience Programme Officer at WFP Kenya and 2016 student of CERAH’s Certificate of Advanced Studies: Designing Strategies & Projects for Humanitarian Action.

“The course grounded me with theoretical understanding and some practical lessons about humanitarian action. The subjects broadened my perspective with regard to the social and political issues happening within the international humanitarian system. I also learned about the moral dilemmas faced by every aid actor in various sectors when deployed in the field – based on first hand testimonies from my DAS colleagues, the CERAH mentors and outside speakers. They did not only impart knowledge and experience, but shared life lessons, realities, and potential solutions for future challenges.” Bridgit AU-GENER, student of CERAH’s Diploma of Advanced Studies in Humanitarian Action 2016.
