To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the number of women’s organisations the Government Equalities Office regularly engages with; and by what methods that Office engages with those women’s organisations.
3 November 2020
The Government Equalities Office has engaged with more than 25 women’s organisations by phone, email, online and in person in 2020. GEO regularly meets with relevant umbrella organisations including, most recently, Equally Ours, the UK Civil Society Women’s Alliance, National Alliance of Women's Organisations and Business in the Community to discuss the gendered impacts of COVID-19 to feed into policy advice. GEO is working to ensure the government can hear and be influenced by a wide range of women’s voices.
