Former Staff

The success of an organisation is built on the work of its staff and that work includes supporting each other when times are very busy. SF is committed to the bringing together of relevant internal actors – and this may include executive members in decision making processes. SF is committed to providing a space for people to input into deliberations around decisions. Mainstreaming a gender perspective in SF is the process of assessing the implications to women and men of any planned action, including legislation, policies or programmes, in any area and at all levels.
