IWDA is an Australia 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

We resource the work of diverse women’s rights organisations, enable them to be more effective by providing support that goes beyond money, and we make our own contributions to feminist movements through advocacy, knowledge creation and translation.

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 at the partnerships across the Majority and Minority worlds. 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

SIT WITH uncertainty, embrace communal learning and deep listening, and accept that time is needed to collectively discern the best course of action.


IWDA’s Feminist Organisational Capacity Strengthening (FOCS) Toolkit supports organisations in their internal, organisational development and reflection, through a feminist lens.

The FOCS Toolkit was developed in collaboration with global feminist knowledge network, Gender at Work, along with various feminist organisations in the Asia and Pacific regions. The six modules of the toolkit are designed to support women’s rights organisations (WROs) to apply feminist principles to:

  • assess their organisational capabilities
  • develop cultures of self and collective care
  • strengthen leadership and governance
  • mobilise more and better resources
  • facilitate their own organisational capacity strengthening workshops
  • provide facilitators with essential information on the frameworks used in the workshops


The FOCS Toolkit recognises that strong WROs are key to maintaining a space for voice, visibility and advocacy and are best placed to increase vibrant and resilient feminist movements.


The aim of this consultancy is to provide technical support to developing feminist organisational capacity strengthening workshop curriculum/s.

As outlined above, this consultancy is designed in a flexible way, to draw on the specific skills, expertise and experience of the selected consultant/s. Therefore, the first step of the consultancy will be for the consultant/s and IWDA staff to discuss and agree on the key deliverables; division of labour and ways of working as a team.

  • Providing guidance on applying universal accessibility design principles to the FOCS Toolkit
