Course: Gender Responsive Governance (Blended Training)
How can policies and programmes be inclusive and more specifically, gender sensitive? How do values of inclusiveness and gender equality result in better performance and greater benefits for your organization or community? This course discusses gender-sensitive strategies as well as tools for gender analysis, mainstreaming gender and gender-responsive budgeting in policies and programmes at the local level.
Special attention is given to designing strategies for an effective and meaningful involvement of marginalized groups (i.e. women, youth) in development initiatives. The course will also underline how best to engage men and discuss cross-cutting issues of applying a diverse gender perspective (intersectionality), especially in complex cultural and religious settings.
Practical examples from around the globe, the application of interactive ways of sharing knowledge and work with renowned experts in this field will give participants a deeper understanding of gender dynamics and strategies for addressing the different needs and priorities of women, men, young girls and boys.
Key concepts of this course will include gender analysis, gender mainstreaming, gender budgeting, equitable service delivery, social economic empowerment, meaningful participation, transformative change, effective communication, working with gender in complex settings, gender in conflict and peace and Gender Based Violence.
