Online Certificate Course in Gender ander Development Training
This course is designed to prompt an exploration of common behaviours and attitudes towards gender differences. It will present facts and figures about the situation of women and men in our society today – and references from key documents that highlight policies formulated to address gender concerns. Recent events have shown that if governments are serious about achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, SDG’s, it is essential that gender be taken into account for all the goals. Gender equality in the SDG's touches almost exclusively on the area of education, and research does show the importance of equality in this area, but this is not sufficient. This e-learning course will empower the participants with tools and sector-specific guidelines for gender mainstreaming in their various institutions and development planning. It will further improve the abilities of participants to reduce gender inequalities in their various homes, organisation and communities.
The course is aimed at gender focal points, women organisations, programs and project managers, researchers, policy-makers, activists, women advocates and feminists, students, staff of NGOs and CBOs, staff of UN specialized agencies, donor agency field workers, volunteers, development actors, trainers, students, government officials etc. Candidates should have a good written command of English language and high competence and comfort with computer and internet use.
