Equality Policies & Gender Mainstreaming

The District Women’s Secretariat leads the mainstreaming of the gender approach in the 15 sectors of the district administration and its entities. Some of our main achievements include: the issuance of guidelines for the mainstreaming of gender and differential approaches, capacity building of district personnel and the development of protocols against sexual and workplace harassment.

In addition, we have implemented Resolution 2210 of 2021 of the District Planning Secretariat, incorporating population and gender approaches in the planning instruments of the Capital District. Bogota has stood out as the first city in the country with the Seal of Equality, which recognizes and transforms the institutional culture of entities and companies that collaborate with the District Administration.

Through the Public Policy on Women and Gender Equity – PPMyEG, we have achieved numerous milestones, such as 91,415 effective services through the District Purple Line, 18 Comprehensive Health Services for Women, and the training of 16,938 women in the use of technological, information and communications tools (ICT). In addition, we have delivered 10,859 subsidies for women and formulated a Land Use Plan with a gender and women’s rights approach. We have also implemented the Gender Equality and Equity Budget Tracer – TPIEG.

Within the framework of the Public Policy for Paid Activities – PPASP, we have provided sponsorships for state tests (ICFES) to women participants of the flexible education cycle in the Casa de Todas Strategy. In addition, we have established a flexible education strategy in high impact areas in Mártires, in collaboration with the District’s Secretary of Education and the District’s Education Institution -IED- Panamericano and Casa de Todas. We have also provided continuous training to the Metropolitan Police of Bogotá.
