Gender and inclusion, new framework contract awarded
FGB was awarded the new edition of the Framework Contract for the provision of Gender and Economic Inclusion Technical Assistance, financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, particularly Pillar 1: Skills & Employment and Pillar 3: Access to Services (currently under negotiation).
Pillar 1 aims to support EBRD’s Gender and Economic Inclusion Team in reducing inclusion gaps and promoting the skills and employability of young labour market entrants, older workers and women with the overall objective to promote equality of opportunities. This may include improving HR policies and practices, designing training programmes, implementing a Gender/Equal Opportunities Action plan, as well as providing capacity building and implementation support.
Under Pillar 3, FGB will support EBRD’s Gender and Economic Inclusion Team in reducing inclusion gaps and creating inclusive and gender-responsive services and public goods with the overall objective to promote equality of opportunities. This work may include evaluating impacts of infrastructure projects, promoting the use of relevant services, and developing designs for inclusive infrastructure services.
