ICA Thematic Committees
The Gender Equality Committee (ICA GEC) is a thematic committee of the International Co-operative Alliance which promotes equality between women and men and gender integration in the co-operative movement and society. It was formerly known as the ICA Global Women's Committee.
Human Resource Development
The ICA Global Human Resource Development Committee (ICA HRD) shares knowledge, information and guidance on co-operative education and training issues to Human Resource practitioners, co-operative leaders and co-operative managers. It also provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, aspirations and practical experiences to enhance the social and economic effectiveness of co-operatives.
The Committee, working in collaboration with the National Co-operative Union of India and the Vaikunth Mehta National Institute of Co-operative Management has established the Global HRD Network for co-operatives.
The ICA Committee on Co-operative Research (ICACCR) is a bridge between academic research and the co-operative world. The ICACCR aims to raise awareness of co-operative research, particularly to managers and co-operators so that it can be applied effectively to current co-operatives issues.
The ICA Communications Committee (ICACC) ensures that the co-operative business model is promoted effectively and appropriately to as wide an audience as possible around the world. The Committee works towards building a level of understanding amongst communications professionals in co-operatives globally to encourage them to promote the business model as part of their work.
The ICA Youth Network aims to help young co-operators from different countries to connect, share experiences and ideas, as well as to provide an environment where young co-operators can learn more about the wider co-operative movement. Involving young people from outside the movement through education and support is a key focus of the work of this network. The network also looks to empower young co-operators to engage with the rest of the movement to both raise the profile of youth issues and to ensure the youth perspective is presented during wider discussions.
