Join us for USA Premiere of “Gender in Coffee – A Documentary” and Discussion

Join us on July 25th at Carrboro Coffee Roasters for an informative, fun, and ultimately inspiring screening of Gender in Coffee – A Documentary to learn how gender inequalities impact farming families and communities and to participate in a lively discussion to get to the heart of the issues and solutions.

Coffee farming families around the world face enormous daily challenges that put them, and your delicious cup of coffee, at risk. The Partnership for Gender Equity works to ensure farming is viable for all members of the family – women, men, and youth; on whom the entire industry depends.

Seating is limited so be sure to reserve your seat here. All funds raised will go to support the Equal Origins initiative of The Partnership for Gender Equity.

We hope to see you there!

Partnership for Gender Equality

We wanted to announce our support of the Equal Origins Program In collaboration with Carrboro Coffee Roasters!

This program works to unlock the potential of coffee farming women, youth and their families, to promote equitable opportunities & catalyze a supply chain that works for everyone.

At a workshop in Nicaragua, February 27 & 28, titled “Strengthening the Links of the Coffee Value Chain through Gender Equity” , 30 participants from households, producer organizations and roasters were brought together to exchange their experiences and perspectives and work on a collaborative vision and roadmap for work at these three levels of the value chain to accelerate impact for families, communities and the supply chain as a whole.

The Equal Origins Initiative – will work to ensure that everyone, at every level of the supply chain, matters equally.
