Gender mainstreaming is the process of assessing and taking into account the implications for women and men 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.
The programme will be interactive and participants will have the opportunity to apply the learning to their policy areas, developing tools and plans to use in their work.
All of our open programmes are delivered in an interactive and engaging style and will require full participation from delegates. Therefore, we advise that you have a proficient level of written and spoken English language in order to gain the full benefits of our open programmes.
Senior civil servants and managers and those involved in policy development and implementation.
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.
