Realising Gender Equity
Participants are able
- to understand the basic concept of gender sensitivity in civil society organisations and activists' movements;
- to identify in which ways gender is relevant for themselves in their context;
- to plan concrete steps for advancing a safer space and gender sensitive mainstreaming.
In this training, we will look at power differences from a gender perspective. Social norms are interacting with power issues and shape society's understanding of 'men' and 'women' and their 'appropriate' roles at work and in the public sphere. A more just society relies on gender-sensitive civil society organisations.
This training, therefore, will look at the relevance of 'gender' on an individual and organisational level. Together we will develop an organisation-specific plan for creating a momentum of change and a plan for transformation.
