Course Overview

Gender equality and women’s empowerment can unlock human potential on a transformational scale. For societies to thrive, women and girls, men and boys must have equal access to education, healthcare and technology. They must also have equal control of resources, lands and markets. And, they must have equal rights and opportunities.

This training offering focuses on competencies in promoting gender equal roles and relations of women/girls and men/boys, countering negative gender stereotypes and integrating gender perspective in development programming.
