Women’s Inclusion

One Earth Future (OEF) prioritizes diversity, inclusion and belonging, not only throughout our offices and staff teams, but also within the programs we operate globally.

We believe that in order to be successful both as an organization and as drivers of change in our mission to build sustainable peace worldwide, we must be relentlessly proactive in creating enabling environments that foster a feeling of empowerment and belonging among our communities. We are committed to building a culture of inclusivity and equality as part of our operational values.

One Earth Future’s Perspectives on Peace video series spotlights some of the powerful women leaders across our program teams, lending their voices and dedicating their talents to building sustainable peace and a more equitable world for all.

 Today, it is well documented that women’s empowerment and gender equality are critical to achieving peace and stability around the world. The full and meaningful leadership, empowerment, and protection of women is essential to resolving deadly conflict and building stable, prosperous, and just post-conflict societies. Yet gender equality continues to be overlooked in related projects and policies. At a minimum, incorporating gender perspectives is necessary in order to avoid unintentionally exacerbating inequality. At One Earth Future Foundation (OEF), incorporating a gender perspective means considering the different experiences, priorities, needs, and values of women, men, girls, boys, and nonbinary persons and taking into account how these different experiences will impact the success or failure of every program and funding decision at OEF. It promotes gender equality and supports programmatic goals from sustainable resource management to preventing violence and war.
