Gender Action

Schools Linking Programme

Gender Action is an award programme which promotes and supports a whole-school approach to challenging stereotypes.


The award programme promotes and encourages a whole-school approach to challenging stereotypes. Tiered progression levels put gender equality at the heart of policy and practice, recognising those striving to ensure there are no limits on young people reaching their full potential.


The programme was founded by the Institute of Physics (IOP), King’s College London (KCL), UCL Institute of Education (IOE) and University Council of Modern Languages (UCML), and DECSY engaged with the project as a partner.


Now that the award programme is up and running, DECSY is administering the programme and the founding members and DECSY are continuing to oversee and steer the programme as a consortium.
