The poster presents an overview of milestones in the development and integration of gender research at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in the last decade. It outlines the steps undertaken by ILRI to move from a lack of gender capacity in 2002 towards the first gender efforts in 2005 when a gender audit was commissioned. Between 2006 and 2009, a gender task force was created to develop a research agenda on women and livestock issues, and between 2009 and 2011, more consistent efforts were undertaken to grow the capacity of the gender team and gender research by hiring gender scientists and focusing on resource mobilisation for gender specific research.
