Investing in Women Renews Partnership with ECUE to Grow the Vietnam Gender Equality Movement

Investing in Women is pleased to announce its renewed partnership with ECUE for expanding and strengthening the Vietnam Gender Equality Movement (VGEM) 

ECUE is a social enterprise dedicated to advancing gender equality, diversity, and inclusion in both the workplace and larger society. ECUE coordinates the Vietnam Gender Equality Movement (VGEM), which spearheads initiatives aimed at fostering gender equality through deeper understanding of how gender frameworks impact on day-to-day life, such as in the workplace and at home. 

With support from Investing in Women, ECUE-VGEM will launch the project, “Work-Home Interplay: Gen Z Driving Gender Norm Change in Vietnam,” specifically targeting urban young professionals working in the formal sector. The project aims to build a strong community of like-minded individuals dedicated to gender equality through mutual learning, peer support, and collective advocacy. This Community of Practice (CoP) is expected to support advocates in steering public discussions around gender norms both at home and in the workplace, towards greater equality.

Members of VGEM come from diverse backgrounds, including development, public, and private sectors. By connecting VGEM members through a COP, ECUE will support advocates from across Vietnamese society to make a meaningful and lasting change towards greater gender equality.  

Investing in Women supports locally driven campaigns in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam that highlight positive examples of gender equality to strengthen public support for women’s economic participation. Through fostering a community of gender equality advocates, IW will continuously build evidence that supports the broader adoption of progressive attitudes and behaviours.
