Our Work: Through our flagship report and Gender and Health Index, GH5050 provides the only birds-eye view of gender, inclusion and equality in the global health system today. The report assesses 200 organisations annually across a core set of variables on policies and practices to tackle power and privilege imbalances within the workplace, the gender and geography of organisational leadership, and whether gender is considered in any organisations’ externalfacing programmatic or policy work. In addition to the annual report, GH5050 also produces a range of other evidence-informed outputs, including thematic reports relating to equality and diversity in the workplace (e.g. report on gender pay gap), and policy briefs about strategies for organisational change. GH5050 is growing and we have plans to expand into new sectors beyond health. The successful candidate for this post is expected to play an integral role in contributing to the growth of GH5050 and its impact on advancing gender equality and equal opportunity across hundreds of actors active in the health, justice and economy sectors.

You will join a small and growing team of staff working at GH5050, with a large, global network of Collective Members who provide part-time inputs into GH5050’s work, coupled with a high-powered Advisory Council.  As Head of Communication and Advocacy you will be instrumental in leading, developing and implementing strategies to engage and influence key stakeholders responsible for global public health policy, raise awareness of GH5050 research and engender change within organisations assessed by GH5050.
