CQI Partnership for Gender Equity:
The Way Forward

The Coff­ee Quality Institute (CQI) founded the Partnership for Gender Equity in the fall of 2014. The objective of this strategic initiative is to illuminate how gender inequality at origin impacts coff­ee outcomes and the well-being of producers – and to determine how to respond.

The Partnership now moves to Stage 2, with the following activities planned for 2016:
· Communicate about gender equity best practices to members and the broader industry
· Provide custom guidance for companies to integrate gender equity into their policies and practices
· Design and launch pilot projects to implement recommendations from The Way Forward
· Define research metrics for gender equity in coffee value chain initiatives
· Develop Gender Equity Principles for Coffee and procure industry signatories
