The Gender Equality Seal for Public Institutions (GESpi) is a innovative gender equality seal recognition and global programme for public institutions that commit to advance gender equality and women's empowerment in their policies and programmes, and their work place. We are looking for Online Volunteers to translate the GESpi Tool box and the content of the online platform and other materials. The materials are currently in English and Spanish and we would need them to be translated in French. The Tool Box is composed of 25 different tools (most of them are few pages long) in Word, ppt and excel, while the platform content is mostly short paragraphs. The total estimated extension would be 150 word pages aprox. The Online Volunteers will need to bear in mind that these tools will be used globally, so the language in each case must be as universal as possible.
Translation and interpretation
The Gender Equality Seal in Public Administration (GESpi) is a methodological proposal to support and acknowledge the efforts of public institutions towards achieving substantive equality between women and men within the framework of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The Gender Equality Seal in Public Administration proposes to accelerate gender mainstreaming in SDGs implementation, based on a comprehensive process of improving and transformation of key internal and external aspects of the institutional architecture, policies and procedures. In-house, the GESpi intents to integrate gender equality principles and practices in the institutional organization and culture which are the core of the organizations’ operations. Externally, the GESpi aims to promote public institutions to analyze and mainstream gender into the public policies and programmes, to improve their approaches and their potential impact on women’s lives and empowerment and gender equality.
