Gender Mainstreaming Training Workshop

  • Zambia

Keno Institute



We are proud to offer this 4-day practical workshop in gender mainstreaming from the 6th to 9th August 2024.

Gender Mainstreaming is the process of assessing the implications for women and men of any planned action, including legislation, policies or programs, in all areas and at all levels. It is a strategy for making women’s as well as men’s concerns and experiences an integral dimension of the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programs in all political, economic and societal spheres so that women and men benefit equally, and inequality is not perpetuated. The ultimate goal of gender mainstreaming is to achieve gender equality (ECOSOC, 1997). Mainstreaming is not an end in itself but a strategy, an approach, a means to achieve the goal of gender equality.

This course aims to provide participants with a comprehensive knowledge of gender mainstreaming. It draws on best practices and case studies from around the world and Zambia in particular. It also provides the opportunity to focus on a specific policy area for participants to employ this knowledge in their own workplace.
