VALUES: Feminist, Accountable, Collaborative, Transformative
OUR GOALS 2020-2023
1. Resource and contribute to resilient and vibrant feminist movements, primarily in the areas of power, leadership and civic space; freedom from violence; and gendered climate justice

IWDA works in partnership with gender equality focused organisations in Asia and the Pacific; with international women’s movement coalitions; and with government and academic institutions in Australia to address the practical and structural barriers to gender equality.

As part of this contribution, we take actions to decolonise our approach to feminism and development. We want to become the best we can be in the world at north-south partnerships. This means we seek to understand and leverage our locational power so that we know when to:
STEP UP and use our power to leverage resources and access for women’s rights organisations, and make our own contribution to feminist movements
STAND WITH feminist movements in solidarity and amplify the work of global south actors
STEP BACK when others are better placed to take the lead.
