IOM Presents Video Promoting I Know Gender Course

9 October 2015


In an effort to support training for gender equality throughout the UN System, the International Organization for Migration has launched a call to all its staff urging them to take the UN Women Training Centre’s e-learning course “I Know Gender: An Introduction to Gender Equality.” This call includes a video by William Lacy Swing, Director General of the IOM, informing their staff that because gender equality is vital to their success in assisting migrants and their families, the course is now mandatory to all IOM staff. To support IOM with the strategy to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment into its mandate the Training Centre is providing a training for Training for IOM Gender Focal Points this week (12-16 October) in IOM Headquarters in Geneva.
