Lessons or learning points– what works? <ul><li>Having a specific influencing agenda enables BRIDGE to conduct it’s role as an intermediary more effectively. </li></ul><ul><li>As a result of trying to shift attitudes, policy and practice BRIDGE cannot be an objective conduit of information. </li></ul><ul><li>But this does not mean it cannot promote diversity and support less dominant voices alongside the mainstream. </li></ul><ul><li>Successfully finding a niche in-between others can create opportunities for collaboration and for influencing them </li></ul><ul><li>Building relationships with others who are more powerful enables us to find spaces to influence them from within </li></ul><ul><li>Gender work requires a particular awareness of subjectivity, of power and of the politics of information. </li></ul>
