People Linking to Embrace and Develop Gender Equality

About PLEDGE

PLEDGE (People Linking to Embrace and Develop Gender Equality) is a partnership of Knox based organisations established circa 2008. PLEDGE was previously known as Knox Accord. 
Our aim is to promote gender equality to create a world where everyone enjoys equal opportunities, choices, resources and services in a gender. A world that is better, safer and fairer for all of us, with balanced, more successful families, richer workplaces and healthier communities.

Gender equality is the state in which access to rights or opportunities is unaffected by gender.

Oxford Dictionaries

PLEDGE shares a commitment to act as champions for change, to impact the views of generations and reach the Knox community to take a stand and advance gender equality. We all have a role in building understanding and acting for greater equality in our workplaces, places of study and community, as well as changing attitudes to gender inequality that contribute to violence against women.
