A Guide for Strengthening Gender Equality and Inclusiveness in Teaching and Learning Materials
The Guide for Strengthening Gender Equality and Inclusiveness in Teaching and Learning Materials was produced for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in 2015. It was informed by a literature review conducted by Nina Etyemezian of RTI International. It was authored by Jennae Bulat, of RTI International, and Michelle Lapp, an independent consultant, as part of the Data for Education Research and Programming (DERP) project with USAID’s Bureau for Africa. Guidance was provided by Julie Hanson Swanson and Koli Banik of the Education Division of the Office of Sustainable Development, Bureau for Africa. In support of the Agency’s Education Strategy and Policy on Gender Equality and Female Empowerment, this guide advances global efforts toward greater gender equality and inclusiveness in education by providing guidance on how to develop and evaluate materials that are free of bias and that promote equality and inclusiveness of all marginalized, disadvantaged, and underrepresented groups.
