The UN Women’s Training Centre’s Annual Report 2019 is out now!

1 April 2020

The UN Women Training Centre’s latest Annual Report 2019 reminds us why training for gender equality matters now more than ever.
As UN Women’s training arm, the UN Women Training Centre strengthens skills and knowledge on gender equality through transformative training. In 2019, we delivered 89 training courses on issues at the heart of UN Women’s strategic areas to 67,300 participants. They ranged from courses on gender-responsive budgeting, gender and macroeconomics, the SDGs, safe cities, the capacities of Gender Focal Points, and gender and disarmament, among others. Our joint certification programme with KIT strengthened the quality of our field – so that gender trainers can deliver training for gender equality that is ever more effective, feminist and transformative. Our eLearning Campus grew to include 103,643 users in 2019, while Virtual Dialogues by our Community of Practice on and engaged record numbers of participants. We matched our exponential growth with an unwavering commitment to provide the highest quality training as a strategic ally of UN Women’s Country and Regional Offices, other UN agencies, training institutions, governments, civil society, academics and development practitioners.

We paired our training courses with knowledge products. In 2019, we continued to produce a steady flow of evidence, practical tools and thought leadership on training for gender equality. These included updated versions of our Working Papers on theories of change , feminist pedagogies , and quality assurance.

All of these outputs are all part and parcel of a major objective of our work at the UN Women Training Centre – to reclaim training for gender equality as a process of feminist knowledge transfer and creation. In this and other ways, large and small, training for gender equality is an increasingly more important part of advancing progress on the SDGs.
