Miyahuna Jordan: Engendering Industries Partner Profile

Summary

Engendering Utilities uses an evidence-based methodology to support women’s participation in Jordan’s energy sector. The program supports Miyahuna, a utility company in Jordan, to increase opportunities for women by introducing gender equality initiatives at each phase of the employee lifecycle. In 2018, Miyahuna participated in a comprehensive gender study of women working in Jordan’s water sector, as part of the USAID Water Management Initiative (WMI) project. Fourteen women and thirteen men from Miyahuna participated in focus group discussions, which raised important recommendations for improving the participation of women in Jordan’s water sector. The Gender Study on Women Working in the Water Sector set the foundation for the first gender policy to be proposed at the national governmental sector level. This policy, titled the Water Sector Gender Policy, was formally adopted into Jordan’s National Water Strategy in June 2020.
