Accountability and Transparency
IWDA is committed to full accountability and transparency to our partners, supporters and the diverse women we work with.
We have full accreditation under the Australian Aid program. We are an active member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and committed to the ACFID Code of Conduct. As a signatory to the Code, we are committed to conducting our work with transparency, accountability and integrity.
IWDA is also a member of the Fundraising Institute of Australia and is guided by its Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
We are committed to being a leader and specialist in gender and feminist development practice, and ensuring our work is evidence-led.
We are committed to disclosing timely, relevant and accurate information in an accessible format. IWDA shares information regarding our governance structure, key policies, legal status and organisational purpose. IWDA is committed to share description of significant programs, policy papers, reports and press releases, formal agreements with other organisations and records of the environmental impact of activities.
IWDA is committed to transparency and integrity in our financial management. Please see our Annual Reports page for the 2019 Annual Report and Financial Summary and archive of previous IWDA Annual Reports.
Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Reports
Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) is the process through which IWDA tracks the progress and impact of our work, and engages in learning towards continuous improvement. Please see our MEL Reports page for the latest report.
Human Rights Statement
IWDA is committed to advancing human rights for everyone, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, indigeneity, disability, age, displacement, caste, gender, gender identity, sexuality, sexual orientation, poverty, class or socio-economic status. IWDA takes a rights-based, feminist approach to its work in order to prioritise action on the inequities and injustices faced by women.
Commitment to Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism
IWDA’s board, leadership and staff are committed to addressing racial injustice and discrimination of all forms, including within our own organisation. We endeavour to listen, learn and act to become an explicitly diverse, inclusive and anti-racist feminist organisation. This journey is core to our values and vision. Please see our Disability Inclusion Policy and full Commitment to Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism for more information.
Conflicts of Interest
IWDA’s Conflict of Interest Policy is to help IWDA effectively identify, disclose and manage any actual, potential or perceived conflicts of interest in order to protect the integrity of IWDA, its partners and the sector, and to manage risk. Conflicts of interest are common, and they do not need to present a problem as long as they are openly and effectively managed. Situations where an actual or perceived conflict of interest exists pose a risk to IWDA that a person will make, or be perceived to be making a decision based on, or affected by, these influences, rather than in the best interests of the organisation. Therefore these situations must be managed accordingly.
