We understand that communities are comprised of diverse groups of people with different needs, priorities and interests. Developing and delivering effective strategies for promoting gender equality and social inclusion is fundamental to creating thriving communities, eliminating poverty, tackling climate change and to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Coffey’s Gender Equality, Disability and Social Inclusion Consulting business works clients and local partners to design and deliver specific activities, actions and efforts that tackle the persistent challenges and barriers that are holding women and people with disabilities back from achieving their full potential.

Our three-person team—made up of male and female advisers—have more than 45-years’ combined experience working in gender and development in Australia and across Asia and the Pacific. Together with clients, including governments, civil society, donors, and private and public organisations, we develop, integrate and implement solutions that effectively address gender equality, disability and social inclusion issues in priority areas such as:

• Education
• Women’s leadership and capacity development
• Private sector development
• Transport and infrastructure
• Women’s economic empowerment
• Governance
• Finance and investing
• Health
