How development & humanitarian organizations use Equilo
Easier, faster data-driven GESI analysis for project design and implementation
Equilo automates much of the work of conducting gender analysis for project design, action planning, budgeting, and M&E planning, freeing up time and money for development and humanitarian organizations to spend on implementation, and making it easier to operationalize gender as a standard practice across the organization.
Strengthened GESI integration in proposals
Rather than wasting time doing manual research on GESI gaps and strengths, proposal writers instantly access information to ensure compelling, specific GESI analysis and solutions are offered to meet proposal criteria. The more specific a proposal is in showcasing the knowledge of GESI constraints and proposed solutions, the more successful the bid is likely to be.
