Make Your Pledge

Advancing gender equality in Scotland requires more than good intentions. It requires action. And a willingness to be held accountable. That’s why the NACWG is calling on organisations of all types and sizes in Scotland (including public, private and 3rd sector) to tell us what specific actions they are undertaking to accelerate progress on gender equality.

We are interested to understand what action you are taking and the change that has resulted, and lessons learned along the way. 

With your permission we will highlight good practice, and share the progress you have made within your organisation following your #GenerationEqual Pledge to inspire others to take action.

By sharing your organisation’s commitments, you will help the NACWG build a picture of what’s changing for the better in Scotland, and the areas where more work is needed. Information provided will be kept confidential. The NACWG will seek specific consent for participation in any publicity. If you feel you are ready to make your pledge, please click the link below to give us some details.
