Africa Training Institute is pleased to announce Diploma in Gender and Development Course. This is both an online and Distance Learning Course, which starts 1st of every month.
Overall Course Overview
In response to increased global attention to gender issues, there is a growing need for knowledge and skills in gender and development. This course is designed to prompt an exploration of common behaviors and attitudes towards gender differences. It will present facts and figures
about the situation of women and men in our society today – and references from key documents that highlight policies formulated to address gender concerns. Recent events have shown that if governments are serious about achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, SDG’s, it is essential that gender be taken into account for all the goals. Gender equality in the SDGs touches almost exclusively on the area of education, and research does show the importance of equality in this area, but this is not sufficient.
This e-learning course will empower the participants with tools and sector-specific guidelines for gender mainstreaming in their various institutions and development planning. It will further improve the abilities of participants to reduce gender inequalities in their various homes,
organization and communities.
