On 13 April, the UN Women Training Centre held the Webinar Gender Focal Points as Agents of Change. The Webinar aimed to present Gender Focal Points and interested UN Staff with the concept of the UN System Gender Focal Point as an agent of change by not only drawing attention to the issues of gender equality, but also serving as a hub of information and providing the necessary tools and skills to enable UN Staff to adopt practices that advance Gender Equality.

The course Empowering UN System Gender Focal aims to strengthen capacity of UN System gender focal points in their specific role and functions in advancing gender equality within their own organizations. It also promotes the building of a community to encourage discussion and sharing of good practices. The course is a joint collaboration between the UN Women Training Center and the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO). This year, the course is offered from 4 to 27 May (4 weeks online and 5 days face-to-face in Turin, Italy).
