The Coalition to Empower Gender Equality (CEGE) is a non-sectarian, non-profit,
and non-partisan organization that works to empower women and men to achieve gender
equality in our society. We will provide a connection for individuals, organizations,
businesses and government to discuss issues of inequality and create solutions.
Through this process, we provide a training ground for developing gender equality
in a safe and supportive environment. This enables members to build skills, networks
and create an equal society free from discrimination.
To share the burdens, responsibilities and rewards of our institutions and systems
equally between women and men without preference, privilege or discrimination. To
ensure a respectful equal status of women with men in our society, including at
the table where decisions are made, for a more balanced and empowering existence.
The Coalition to Empower Gender Equality (CEGE) will eliminate discrimination and
bias to achieve a gender equal society through education, awareness, and advocacy
within a supportive network.
