Advancing Learning and Innovation on Gender Norms (ALIGN)

ALIGN is a digital platform aimed at advancing understanding of gender norms by connecting a global Community of Practice committed to gender equality for adolescents and young adults. By encouraging collaboration and knowledge exchange, ALIGN aims to ensure evidence and learning on norm change informs more effective policy and practice. 

The digital platform consists of: a searchable resource hub, thematic guides and other ALIGN-commissioned resources written by gender norms experts, information about funding opportunities, and community pages including spotlights on gender norms projects. ALIGN also hosts events and webinars, and encourages our community to participate in growing the site by recommending resources, attending events, applying for funding, and participating in our online discussions. You can sign up to our newsletter for up-to-date information on the latest content, opportunities and events.
