Our Policies – Women Deliver
Women Deliver upholds the following policies in everything we do, including our advocacy, partnerships, and internal culture.

Child and Young Person Safeguarding Policy

Women Deliver has a proactive obligation to develop and implement gender-responsive programs that promote the health, safety, and wellbeing of children and young people. As part of this commitment, Women Deliver’s Child and Young Person Safeguarding Policy states that no child or young person should suffer intentional or unintentional abuse, neglect, or exploitation because of their engagement, association, or contact with Women Deliver, and is aligned with principles of meaningful youth engagement and Do No Harm. Women Deliver enforces the policy through prevention measures and is committed to swift, accountable, and transparent investigation and disciplinary procedures in the event of incidents or concerns.

Donor Engagement Policy

To help achieve its goals, Women Deliver seeks funding from a variety of supportive partners, including corporations, foundations, and individuals who are essential to achieving our goals for girls and women. Accordingly, Women Deliver only accepts funding from partners that are compatible with Women Deliver’s vision, mission, and strategic priorities, and who exemplify good business and ethical practices. Certain products, services, or actors are categorized as disqualified due to their intrinsic harm to people, particularly women and children, and their lack of compatibility with Women Deliver’s mission.

Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy

Women Deliver is an Equal Opportunity Employer that does not discriminate on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, sex or gender (including pregnancy, childbirth and pregnancy-related conditions), gender identity or expression (including transgender status), sexual orientation, marital status, military service and veteran status, physical or mental disability, genetic information, reproductive health choice, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws or ordinances. Women Deliver prohibits intentional and unintentional harassment of any Women Deliver employee or stakeholder. Employees are encouraged to bring actual or perceived violations of this policy to the immediate attention of the Senior Manager of Employee Experience and HR or to any Senior Focal. Women Deliver will investigate all reports of discrimination or harassment and expects full cooperation of all relevant employees and stakeholders. Women Deliver does not permit any form of retaliation against anyone who, in good faith, initiates a report pursuant to this policy. Read Full Policy >>

Commitment to Preventing Sexual Exploitation and Abuse 

Women Deliver will make every effort to create and maintain a safe environment, free from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA), and shall take appropriate measures for this purpose wherever we conduct Women Deliver programs. SEA violates universally recognized international legal norms and standards and constitutes unacceptable behaviors and prohibited conduct for Women Deliver staff and related personnel, such as consultants and volunteers. Women Deliver has a zero-tolerance policy towards SEA and will take appropriate and robust measures to prevent and respond to SEA. Through this framework, Women Deliver affirms our commitment to the UN Secretary General’s Bulletin on Special Measures for Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse and to realizing the Interagency Standing Committee’s Core Principles relating to SEA.

Anti-Retaliation and Whistleblower Protection Policy

Women Deliver is committed to maintaining the highest standards of honesty and integrity in its financial and accounting practices. Women Deliver recognizes that each board member, staff member, intern and volunteer (collectively, “staff” or “employees”) has an important role to play in achieving this goal. Financial misconduct by anyone at or connected with Women Deliver, at the very least, damages Women Deliver’s reputation and potentially exposes Women Deliver (along with the responsible individual) to legal sanctions. Our Whistleblower Protection Policy is intended to encourage and enable staff to report any violations or suspected violations of federal or state laws, internal financial or accounting policies, financial irregularities or fraud, and to discourage any attempts to retaliate against staff members who report such violations or participate in related investigations. Women Deliver maintains a zero tolerance approach to retaliation against any staff who in good faith reports a violation of any applicable law or internal policy.

Anti-Fraud and Anti-Corruption Policy

Women Deliver has zero tolerance for fraud and corruption and requires staff at all times to act honestly and with integrity and to safeguard the assets for which they are responsible. Fraud and corruption are an ever-present threat to Women Deliver’s assets and reputation and is therefore an important concern for all. Read Full Policy >>
