As part of the process of influencing the adoption of gender policies and practices on flower farms, Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA) convened a gender consciousness training for Human Resource Managers from participating farms in 2018. At the conclusion of that training, the collective agreed that the Human Resource Managers would reconvene at a later date within a 12 months period to gauge progress on the action plans they had developed to make their farms more accommodating to women workers; share learnings and good practices from their farms, and collectively identify solutions to continuing institutional challenges.
AMwA with support from Hivos is convening a reflection meeting for Human Resource Managers from partner farms, as well as Women@Work partners under the women leadership project. The meeting will take place over 3 days from 16th to 18th September, 2019 in Kenya. The reflection meeting will be a space for peer learning and benchmarking, as well as a platform to inject good competitive energy to encourage managers to improve their farms to the best standards attainable.
