ABOUT IWDA

IWDA is an Australian-based organisation, resourcing diverse women’s rights organisations, primarily in Asia and the Pacific, and contributing to global feminist movements to advance our vision of gender equality for all.

VISION: Gender equality for all

PURPOSE: To defend and advance the rights of diverse women and girls

VALUES: Feminist, Accountable, Collaborative, Transformative

OUR GOALS 2020-2023:

1.      Resource and contribute to a resilient and vibrant feminist movement

2.      Promote systemic change towards gender equality for all

3.      Build a resilient and relevant feminist organisation

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. IWDA’s partnership work seeks to achieve transformational systemic change in order to realise our vision of gender equality for all.

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.

ABOUT THE ROLE

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. IWDA’s partnership work seeks to achieve transformational systemic change in order to realise our vision of gender equality for all.

Equality Insights is a flagship program of IWDA that aims to redefine how poverty is understood and measured and inspire wider change, in measurement standards and approaches and in gender equality outcomes. Built on more than 14 years of research and refinement, Equality Insights deploys a gender-sensitive, individual-level survey that asks questions about many aspects of life to better understand how poverty is experienced by men and women. The result is an evidence base of (otherwise invisible) insights to inspire and enable targeted and transformative change.

The Equality Insights program sits within IWDA’s Knowledge Translation Team. The Senior Program Manager (SPM), role supports the program to realise its ambitious objectives and maximise the value and impact of the current funding, while supporting a transition to a more diversified resourcing model. The position is responsible for team management as well as leading and enabling implementation of the Equality Insights program.

The Senior Program Manager ensures program planning, implementation and adaptation is in line with IWDA’s Strategic Plan, and meets contractual requirements of all funding agreements. The role will ensure systematic approaches to program implementation, financial management, monitoring, evaluation and learning.

The Senior Program Manager manages a team of quantitative data specialists (4); a communications specialist (1) and a research coordinator (1). The SPM collaborates with the Director of Knowledge Translation and the Equality Insights Special Advisor on sustainability of the program.

The SPM will ensure the delivery of contractual obligations and contribute to the integration of this program with other relevant areas of IWDA’s work.
