Gender Sensitisation Training

  • Gender Sensitisation Workshop - This is an initiative undertaken by FWRM to build the capacities of organisations and networks to understand gender differences and take an approach that is responsive to gender differences and relations between genders. It is a paid service.

 

  • Gender Equality, Disability and Social Inclusion (GEDSI) Workshop - FWRM recognises that the integration of gender equality, disability, and social inclusion leads to more equitable and sustainable outcomes. The goal of this GEDSI workshop is for organisations to actively support, and make a positive difference to, gender equality, disability, and social inclusion. Through this workshop organisations will commit to building awareness of, and commitment to, principles of gender equality, disability, and social inclusion throughout their work. FWRM will support organisations to make a positive difference to, gender equality, disability, and social inclusion by supporting them to develop the own GEDSI Policy. It is a paid service.

Why is this training important?

Research and practice have shown that when employees and organisations are gender sensitised, they accelerate progress towards gender equality, create a positive working environment, improve productivity and performance which not only benefits the organization but also extends to the wider range of people and partners the organization works with.
