The Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange is excited to celebrate International Women’s Day! On this day, we would like to recognize the important contributions of KIX partners in addressing gender equality and inclusion in education through their work in 70 countries worldwide. Gender equality is both a cross-cutting theme across KIX projects, and identified as a priority theme in a fifth of the KIX portfolio. KIX has invested over $9 million in projects that directly address gender equality in education in the past year.

COVID-19 is an unprecedented crisis for education. KIX research has shown that while it has affected school children worldwide, female students have been disproportionately affected. But there is still hope in the lessons we are learning from the pandemic.

We hope you will help us celebrate International Women's Day by exploring how KIX is helping to create a more equitable future for us all.
