The Technical and Operational Performance Support (TOPS) Program and CARE USA are pleased to offer this set of field-friendly activities entitled Realize: Social and Behavior Change for Gender Equity and Diversity (SBC for GED). The aim of these lessons is to build awareness, facilitate critical reflective dialogue, and explore potential action to improve gender equity and diversity among development staff and community members and to identify GED linkages within social and behavior change interventions to increase their effectiveness.

The activities are designed to be experiential, to encourage new thought and communication patterns that motivate people to change gender norms (and other types of societal norms) that impede the success of development programming – in health, agriculture, and other sectors.
