About Engendering Industries

USAID’s Engendering Industries program increases workforce gender equality in male-dominated sectors worldwide, leading to tangible economic outcomes for women and improved company performance. After seven years of iterative implementation, learning, and evaluation, Engendering Industries has honed a proven approach for advancing workforce gender equality. The approach is comprised of six pillars that sustainably promote gender equality across the employee life cycle. Using this approach our partners have hired and promoted over 12,900 women since 2017, and in 2023, 68 percent of partner companies hired or promoted women at the same rate as men, or higher.
