Share This Page

Banyan Global is implementing the Gender Integration Technical Assistance (GITA) task order under the Advancing the Agenda of Gender Equality (ADVANTAGE) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract. GITA provides on-demand, rapid response short-term technical assistance (STTA) to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Missions and Bureaus across sectors.

Under GITA, Banyan Global is developing a report, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment: A Short History of USAID Policy and Programming, that addresses: How did gender equality and women’s empowerment programming evolve at USAID? and, What were its drivers, milestones, and signature accomplishments? Using Banyan Global’s tested research tools, the two-person research team engaged in document review and key informant interviews with USAID staff to inform the report.
