GenderWorks seeks to transform gender and sexuality injustice and build compassionate relations between all genders through implementing Gender Reconciliation workshops and programmes in South Africa, and in Southern African communities. Gender Reconciliation is a powerful transformative process that brings together people of all genders - irrespective of race, class, religion, sexual orientation, ethnic and cultural background - to jointly explore the patriarchal conditioning that is at the roots of current crisis of our gender relations as a human family.

A safe space is created and, through skilful facilitation, women and men jointly confront the often volatile terrain of gender relations without blame or judgment, thereby transforming these conditions to create compassionate communities and relations based on intregrity, respect, mutual accountability and equality.
