 The 6-month hybrid programme, beginning in February 2022, focuses on gender trainers and gender professionals who are engaged in training for gender equality. The programme aims to:

  •  Sharpen training skills and knowledge of gender and development concepts 
  •  Enable participants to better employ learning and knowledge strategies in training for gender 
  •  Support participants to reclaim training for gender equality as a political feminist process
  •  Renew participants as gender equality trainers and their commitment to gender training as a transformative process
