Learn the practical skills you need to design, deliver and evaluate gender sensitive programs and services. This activity-based workshop will be your introductory step-by-step guide to performing a gender analysis in practice.

The workshop covers:

  • Identifying gendered norms, practices and structures and their impact
  • Approaches to gender inclusive program design
  • Tools and frameworks for conducting a gender analysis
  • How to use real world data to support your work including an introduction to the Women’s Health Atlas
