The Global Food 50/50 initiative monitors progress and holds food system organizations accountable for advancing gender-just and equitable food systems. This event marks the launch of the third annual Global Food 50/50 Report, which reviews the gender- and equity-related policies and practices of 51 global food system organizations to assess two interlinked dimensions of inequality: inequality of opportunity in careers within organizations and inequality in who benefits from the global food system.

For the first time, the 2023/2024 Report expands its focus to address a policy area that plays a decisive role in promoting equality of opportunity in the workplace: the extent to which workplace policies recognize and support employees’ care responsibilities. The data reveal policy attention to parental leave, but other policies related to family needs, such as child care and elder care, remain scarce.

This launch event seminar will present key findings from the report and explore how this new accountability mechanism can empower a broader movement to demand more equitable and inclusive organizations across the global food system.
