NewGender Mainstreaming

Gender mainstreaming is the process of assessing and taking into account the implications for men and women of any planned action including legislation, policies or programmes. This programme will explore how gender mainstreaming strategies put gender issues at the centre of broad policy and programme decisions, institutional structures and resource allocation.

  • Application of gender mainstreaming to policy development and implementation
  • Gathering appropriate data and undertaking consultation
  • Overcoming barriers
  • Visits to high level UK organisations concerned with gender equality and active civil society organisations

Designed for:

Senior civil servants and managers and those involved in policy development and implementation.

Learning Outcomes:

Participants will leave with a good understanding of key concepts involved in gender mainstreaming.  They will understand the processes involved the possible barriers and have considered how to apply gender mainstreaming in their work including developing an action plan.
