To Create Job Opportunities for Women in Fragile and Conflict Affected Countries
By 2030, 30% of our project-related roles will be represented by women
We launched Female First in 2017 to encourage our recruiters, in-country teams and our clients to rebalance the gender scales when it comes to our operations on the ground.
Whilst across our management offices globally we are able to secure a balanced ratio of men to women employees, in both executive leadership and senior-management roles equally, in our humanitarian response operations and teams, particularly where we are employing local staff, it becomes much more challenging.
In developing and post-conflict areas, the involvement of women in the workplace lowers drastically whether due to cultural restrictions, no education or lack of opportunity, or family members not supporting the mobilisation of a women to work in a dangerous work environment. By presenting potential female hires to clients – and creating welcoming and safe environments for all – together with our clients we can balance the gender scales by 2030.
From civil engineers and gender equality specialists to human rights monitors and governance experts, women are considered for all roles at CTG.

CTG prides itself on having many of the Country Management roles, leading operations and projects, already filled by women: this includes high-risk operations in Somalia, Yemen, Sierra Leone, Sudan, South Sudan, Libya, Tunisia, Iraq, Mali, and Syria.
However, there is still much work to be done.
