Making education more inclusive

Going Global Partnerships supports shared solutions to enable more equitable and inclusive higher education and TVAT. We bring partners together to remove barriers to participation, make education inclusive for underrepresented groups, and tackle inequalities in the education system. We focus on addressing the inequalities that women experience during and after study, including increasing women’s participation in STEM, supporting and encouraging women’s leadership and promoting campuses as safe spaces. Ultimately, we support education systems that can address social inequalities, support fairer economic and social growth and ensure nobody is left behind.
