Welcome to the new ALIGN Platform, which is currently under development. This platform will evolve and grow over time and we welcome your feedback to help us to make this a useful source of knowledge and innovation for those working on gender norms, adolescence and young adults. Please check back over the next few months to view our expanded areas of focus and new resources.

Advancing Learning and Innovation on Gender Norms (ALIGN)

ALIGN seeks to advance understanding and challenge and change harmful gender norms by connecting a global community of researchers and thought leaders committed to equality for adolescents and young adults. Through the sharing of information and the facilitation of mutual learning, ALIGN aims to ensure knowledge on norm change contributes to sustainable gender justice.

This digital platform, which is under development, contains curated knowledge and key resources on gender norms theory, research methodologies, interventions and innovations. Over time, we plan to grow the platform to create a members space for the Community of Practice working on gender norms with features such as webinars and forums, and publish new knowledge on innovative ways to address and measure gender norms in the Global South and North.
