The SADC Gender Protocol Alliance has been shortlisted for the Civil Society category of the 2015 Drivers of Change Award.

Drivers of Change Awards recognise individuals and organisations from across southern Africa that are making a real impact in developing effective public policies and strategies to overcome poverty. These awards were established to hold up living examples of innovative practices, inclusive attitudes and effective processes that build social trust and create the best conditions to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty.

Organised by the Southern Africa Trust and Mail and Guardian, the awards recognise four winners in civil society, business, government and individuals

Recipients in the four categories will demonstrate;

– Innovation in the strategies used to develop better public policy;
– Policy work with a focus on making a real difference to the material conditions of people living in poverty;
– Attentiveness to, and significance for, overcoming poverty and inequality throughout the southern Africa region; and
– Inclusion of diverse voices, including voices of the poor.

Winners in the different categories will be announced on October 29 at a colourful dinner gala where Mozambique former president, Joaquim Chissano will deliver the keynote address.
