Driving progress for gender equality in and through education
Harnessing the power of collective action, the UNGEI partnership is on a mission to close the gender gap in education and unlock its transformative power for every girl, everywhere. We champion the rights of girls to a quality education in a safe and gender-sensitive learning environment and hold the international community to account for commitments made to gender equality in and through education.

We build and harness evidence
As a global authority on gender in education, UNGEI promotes evidence-based solutions to drive progress for gender equality in and through education. By facilitating research and developing resources for the sharing of good practice we strive to strengthen the evidence base on what works in girls’ education and gender equality. Harnessing this evidence, we work to catalyse commitment to accelerate progress towards the gender and education targets set out in the Sustainable Development Goals.
We advocate h4>
Using our collective voice, the UNGEI partnership champions gender equality in and through education. Through global summits, regional workshops, digital platforms and more, we partner with youth activists, educators and ally organizations to raise awareness, engage in policy dialogue and promote proven approaches to advance our shared vision. Rooted in evidence of what works, our advocacy agenda focuses on amplifying key messages, influencing policy and driving investment to accelerate progress in girls’ education and gender equality. Our key advocacy areas include:
We speak out for every child’s right to 12 years of quality education. To accelerate progress we need to put the furthest behind first: marginalised girls. And to #LeaveNoGirlBehind we need a whole system, partnership approach.
School-related gender-based violence impacts millions of students globally. Only when schools are safe and gender-sensitive spaces can all children fulfil their right to a quality education. Will you stand with us to #EndSRGBV?
Education can play a critical role in driving progress for gender equality. But only when gender equality is at the heart of education can it deliver on its gender transformative power. We’re on a mission to #Educate4Equality.
Youth activists are working together to transform education for gender equality. They have demands that must be heard. They are leading the change. We stand in solidarity with our Youth Leads community. Will you join us?
