The Solomon Islands Electoral Commission wants to become a leader in the area of gender equality.
It is holding a gender workshop over the next two days, aiming, in the words of Chief Electoral Officer, Polycarp Haununu, to become a "more gender sensitive and transformative" organisation.
The "Gender and Us" workshop will help staff to develop a common understanding of what gender equality is.
Participants will develop a roadmap for gender mainstreaming in the Solomon Islands electoral cycle and gender policy governing the Commission.
He says the workshop will ask staff to consider their attitudes, behaviours, stereotypes and biases.
