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.
