As a gender consultancy, we help clients understand the impact of gender on their work, and find gender aware-solutions to their problems.

GenPol takes conventional gender consulting several steps further, moving beyond a narrow focus on HR issues, and incorporating broader expertise on how gender affects businesses and society.

Academic rigour. Bespoke solutions. An innovative, exciting approach to gender consulting.

We can help with: gender-aware product and process design, gender in the workplace, supply chains and CSR projects, gender orientated due diligence, gender-sensitive decision-making & governance, gender and education, security and gender-based violence prevention, gender and development, sector-specific gender research


Highly customised and thoroughly researched, client-specific deliverables include:

  • Consultancy projects: in-depth qualitative and quantitative research, final reports, policy guidelines and recommendations
  • Training & Mentoring: client-tailored consultancy work delivered through training and workshops
  • Toolkits:  sector-specific, fixed-price packages and tools informed by in-house research

What our clients and partners say

  • I really enjoyed the day and found it very thought-provoking and inspiring.

    Ky Hoyle, Founder of Sh! Women's Erotic Emporium about GenPol's launch conference in June 2017

  • I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere which made it easy to participate, and the opportunity to meet successful and inspiring women.

    Mentee, GenPol's speed mentoring event in Cambridge, March 2017

  • I love the idea of consent as a journey. I had never thought about it this way.

    On GenPol's online course on consent

  • 87 % of respondents to our online consultation of consent trainers, Women’s Officers and sexual violence experts declared to be likely or very likely to make use of our reports and recommendations.

  • I hope to work with GenPol again in the future, and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to understand gender differences in whichever field.

    Karl, project lead

  • I had a wonderful time and found the talks very inspiring.

    Dolly Ogunrinde (IntoUniversity) about GenPol's launch conference in June 2017

  • 90% of the participants in our young women’s speed mentoring programme reported feeling inspired and more confident in their personal and professional lives as a result of attending the programme.

  • It was such an honour to share the
    space with so many wonderful people working so hard to make social
    change and social justice such a core value and aspiration.

    Norah Al-Ani, Director of Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre

  • 83% of the beneficiaries of our consent education toolkit reported feeling more able to make informed, conscious and healthy choices in their love and sex lives, and to clearly express their needs and boundaries as a result of the programme.

  • Reflecting on the conversations I had with the mentors gave me a degree of clarity on when I want to do with my life.

    Mentee, GenPol's speed mentoring event in Cambridge, March 2017

  • I think GenPol's report on sexual abuse in universities is fantastic! Extremely informative and full of good statistics. I will be using it to help shape my campaigns for the year. It is a fantastic piece of research!
