Home Office Gender Equality Network (GEN), Home Office
The Home Office Gender Equality Network (GEN) was re-launched by co-chairs Kerry O’Dea and Jason Ghaboos in 2019, establishing a diverse core team of over 25 passionate volunteers. GEN takes a programmatic and evidence-led approach, initiating a series of pilots and projects aimed at improving workplace inclusivity for all staff and embedding gender equality in everything the department does. Their evidence draws from departmental data, surveys and focus groups with staff, with a strong focus on outcomes. The network focuses on the personal development of their team, supporting each other to achieve their goals without recognising grade structures - the most junior grade can be working on the highest profile project.
