Last year Partner Africa together with Sedex, Co-op and Tesco engaged in a project to evaluate if gender issues could be made more visible within audits and how to address specific needs. 

The results In a nutshell are:

a) Improvement of approach is possible and should be promoted during the auditor trainings 

b) most of the auditors where capable of addressing gender sensitive areas and were prepared upfront
