WFD has recently began the implementation of its new Commonwealth Equality Project. This programme will be implemented by the Westminster Foundation for Democracy and Kaleidoscope Trust and seeks to:

  1. Create greater evidence, capacities and incentives among government actors and parliamentarians of the social and economic costs of discriminatory regulations and practices;
  2. Strengthen collaborative relationships between Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and political decision-makers and the flow of reliable information and evidence;
  3. Deepen civil society policy development and policy advocacy capacities with a view to creating a more conducive environment for positive change in laws, policies and implementation and social norms.

In Uganda, WFD is working with issue-based CSOs and relevant parliamentary caucuses to support the creation of more inclusive policies and legislation.

Spanning six months from 1 October 2020 – 31 March 2021, WFD is seeking an experienced local Expert in gender and/or inclusion based in Kampala, Uganda to work in close collaboration with project partners and the WFD local team to implement the Commonwealth Equality Project.
