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.
Women’s empowerment and gender equality are critical to achieving peace and stability around the world. At One Earth Future, we consider the different experiences, priorities, needs, and values of women, men, girls, boys, and nonbinary persons. We take into account how they impact the success of every program and funding decision.

The full and meaningful participation of women is essential to resolving deadly conflict and building stable, prosperous, and just post-conflict societies.

- Amplifying women’s voices
- Strengthening the global network of women peacebuilders
- Promoting committed action by multiple stakeholders to turn policy into practice
One Earth Future and Shuraako are proud to present the short film “Somali Women Cultivating Sustainable Peace” for Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day. The film showcases several female farm owners in the Garowe/Puntland region of Somalia supported through Shuraako’s Nordic Horn of Africa Opportunities Fund. After decades of hostilities impacted the Somali region’s economy and infrastructure, a new era of economic activity is being ushered in by Somali women's entrepreneurial spirit, helping to create an environment where peace can thrive.
Paso Colombia: Women Seeding Peace
Women Seeding Peace is a video web series created by PASO Colombia, a program of One Earth Future. The series presents stories of transformation, sharing the lives of women who have left illicit crops behind to sow a new future of peace in their communities. These women have participated in PASO Colombia’s Contingency Plan To Support Ex-coca Grower Families, which has lent support in 10 municipalities, assisting 1,967 families registered in the Colombian government’s National Comprehensive Program for the Substitution of Illicit Crops (PNIS), developed as part of the implementation of the Peace Agreement.
