Development of a gender mainstreaming approach for territorial planning

The many themes included in urban planning, such as territorial development strategies, urban renewal and programming, the distribution of public service facilities and spaces of collective interest, mobility, accessibility and safety, etc. have a direct or indirect impact on the actual or perceived quality of the city. They can also be leveraged to improve its functions in the interests of all its users.

While some inequalities are clearly perceptible, others are intrinsically linked to the city and are perceived as unchangeable, particularly so when they reflect unequal societal practices such as distribution of domestic roles, the burden of care, inequalities linked to employment, etc.

Perspective is committed to the gender mainstreaming of all of its missions so that gender equality is taken into account in all activities involved in the making of the city. This initiative aims to ensure that due consideration is given to gender-related concerns and experiences in the city.

Perspective is looking for a team that combines expertise in urban planning and gender studies and, more specifically, that questions gender inequalities and discrimination against women and sexual minorities.
In order to ensure a representation of Brussels’ realities, diversity within the team is an asset.

Interested candidates are invited to submit a tender in one step, at the latest by 27.01.2023 at 12:00 (noon).
