Are you interested in strengthening the projects and programmes your organisation implements or supports to ensure you are integrating women’s rights and gender equality? All too often projects do not take gender inequality issues into account, resulting in gender unaware project design. This negatively impacts project quality and outcomes for all participants.
This new online training course will explore gender, gender norms and stereotypes, the links between gender, power and privilege and what this implies for your work. You will understand how gender inequality impacts all stages of the life cycle and reflect on the international policy context. You will learn how to use gender sensitivity criteria to strengthen your work, how to undertake a gender analysis and how to integrate gender equality into monitoring, evaluation and learning.
This course is intended for people responsible for developing and managing or monitoring and evaluating projects and programmes in the context of international development. This is an introductory course which does not assume specific gender expertise.
The online Women’s rights and Gender Equality Training course is a facilitated, interactive and collaborative e-learning experience. You will have access to:
- INTRAC e-learning platform, with self-paced activities to be completed before/after live sessions, and further resources such as handouts and recordings;
- Three weekly interactive live sessions facilitated by our experienced trainers, which will include small group discussions and live exercises;
- Opportunities to interact with other participants on the programme through the e-learning platform and the live sessions;
- One 50-minute individual mentoring session with one of the trainers.
On average, we estimate participants should set aside about 4-5 hours per week for this course.
