    • 1. BRIDGE - a gender-focused intermediary seeking to have influence Date: 01:07:2008
    • 2. What BRIDGE seeks to do, how and why
      • What is our mission / what’s the problem?
      • Who is BRIDGE trying to influence?
      • What do we see as our role?
      • How do we approach our work?
      • Examples that illustrate this?
    • 3. Cutting Edge Packs - an example of how BRIDGE approaches it’s work
      • What is a Cutting Edge Pack (CEP)?
      • Why is the CEP process important?
      • How has it worked in practice - Gender and Indicators CEP and UNDP, 2007
        • Harnessing UNDP through top-up funding
        • Co-hosted an Expert Panel at CSW
        • Co-facilitated an e-discussion with UNDP staff
        • UNDP disseminated pack internally
      • Other examples:
        • Influencing DFID policy from within
        • Engaging Norwegian People’s Aid – mine action
    • 4. Lessons or learning points– what works?
      • Having a specific influencing agenda enables BRIDGE to conduct it’s role as an intermediary more effectively.
      • As a result of trying to shift attitudes, policy and practice BRIDGE cannot be an objective conduit of information.
      • But this does not mean it cannot promote diversity and support less dominant voices alongside the mainstream.
      • Successfully finding a niche in-between others can create opportunities for collaboration and for influencing them
      • Building relationships with others who are more powerful enables us to find spaces to influence them from within
      • Gender work requires a particular awareness of subjectivity, of power and of the politics of information.
