  Organisational Change for Gender Equality (not running 2020)


   Course Summary

The one week short course introduces participants to practical skills and approaches to build capacity and take action inside a development organisation for the delivery of gender aware policy, programmes and projects. Experience of gender mainstreaming has taught us the importance of building gender knowledge and practical skills among staff and leadership and the significance of an inclusive workplace environment for gender equality. The internal workplace shapes external practice.

The course draws from the experience of working inside a range of development organisations.


   Course Director and Teaching Team

The course is directed by Dr Penelope Plowman, an experienced international organisational development practitioner. Penny is joined by Dr Paramita Muljono who lead the development of a ministerial gender mainstreaming initiative at the Indonesian Ministry of Finance and subsequently completed her PhD on gender and bureaucracy in Indonesia.


   Target audience

The course is designed for people concerned with building capacity and taking action inside development organisations for gender equality.
