Workshop to Gender Focal Points in Guatemala

From 16-17 November, the UN Women Training Centre delivered a workshop to Gender Focal Points in Guatemala. The workshop is the face-to-face portion of the blended course Empowering UN System Gender Focal Points.

The overall objective of this blended course was to enhance the knowledge of UN gender focal points on basic gender concepts, analytical skills, gender mainstreaming tools and improve their ability to comply with the roles and responsibilities assigned to them.

In addition to pedagogical methods and facilitation skills, participants deepened their knowledge on gender and explored strategies and tools for identifying and addressing gender equality obstacles within different UN agencies. The workshop was delivered in partnership with ITC-ILO.
