Main content: The Fourth World Women’s Conference identified gender mainstreaming as a global strategy to promote gender equality. The Chinese government has made its pledge in this vein. Then Chinese President Jiang Zemin declared at the opening ceremony of the conference in 1995 that gender equality would be one of China’s basic national policies. China was one of the 49 countries to make a pledge of commitment to gender mainstreaming. But gender equality in China still faces great challenges. As an important medium for promoting gender equality, the ACWF has exerted an irreplaceable role in China in promoting gender equality and women’s involvement in the development and protection of women and children’s rights. To further implement the basic national policy of gender equality and explore gender mainstreaming channels that have Chinese characteristics, it is important to heighten gender mainstreaming among ACWF high and middle level leaders.

The project is sponsored by China Social Gender Research and Publication Fund. Its main purpose is to promote gender equality in the decision-making of ACWF high and middle level leaders and to elevate their thinking from WID (Women in development) to GAD (Gender and Development). The immediate goal is to raise the gender awareness of high and middle level leaders and increase their social gender decision-making capacity to promote the transformation of the ACWF development strategy and working mode.
