Event Description

This free web-based aims to support development practitioners who are working to strengthen gender equality in relation to governance processes in their workplace. To support them this course seeks to equip participants with an introductory knowledge that can help them to take forward strategies for positive change.

What the course contains:
The course contains four main modules. Each module presents key messages, learning activities, and includes an interesting collection of resources. 

Learning outcomes:
By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  1. Appreciate the differing understandings of governance and how the concept has evolved over time
  2. Understand why governance needs to be gender-sensitive despite the barriers and challenges to this goal
  3. Be able to analyse governance institutions, particularly government institutions, from a gender perspective to expose gender-blind policy and discriminatory practices
  4. Appreciate the context of gender and governance in Nigeria
  5. Understand how change can happen in government institutions themselves so they respond better to the needs of women, challenge gender inequality and promote women’s rights
  6. Be aware of the mechanisms that need to be in place to ensure government institutions are held to account for their record on promoting gender equality by civil society and citizen
  7. Understand what gender-sensitive governance could and should look like, and understand the practical actions to progress towards this goals
  8. Know about the real-world challenges to change that are commonly faced, be inspired by other stories of practical action, and be aware of useful guides and toolkits 

 

Date- The course starts on 1st September and runs until Monday 15th September. During this time facilitators from the Gender Hub team will actively support participants in problem solving and answer questions related to the course. After this period, registered learners will continue to have access to the platform until the end of September 2014.

We expect learners to invest a minimum of 4 hours study time for this course (1 hour per module). We expect individuals to be self-lead and manage their own time within the 15-day period, so that they progress to completion of the course during this time. Course authors
