Gender, Diversity and Inclusion at the Crop Trust

The Crop Trust recognizes the importance of mainstreaming Gender, Diversity and Inclusion (GDI) in achieving its mission, and 2023 saw several important achievements in this respect. For the first time, GDI was introduced as a separate category in the institutional risk matrix. As such, the organization’s GDI risks were identified, and their respective mitigating actions were put into place. This was followed by the establishment of a GDI Committee, an important milestone to ensure that the Crop Trust’s operations, policies and programs are inclusive and equitable for all, regardless of their background, gender, ethnicity, or any other characteristics.

To support the implementation of the GDI Action Plan, the GDI Committee led a workshop during the staff retreat in August 2023 to assess awareness and gather feedback from staff on GDI-related topics. Staff ideas and suggestions were aligned with the Action Plan, and the resulting recommendations were endorsed by senior management. The Action Plan emphasizes the importance of inclusive leadership, an inclusive workplace culture, diverse representation and partnerships that adopt a GDI lens.
