Gender Stereotypes

Gender Stereotypes

By In Gender Hub On May 23, 2015

Another new FREE e-learning course ‘Gender Stereotypes: how can we move beyond stereotyping?’
Register now at: http://bit.ly/1PTdhkU, registration closes on 4th June, 2015 at 1pm WAT / GMT+1.

The aim is to support policymakers, practitioners and activists who are committed to pushing forward with the goal of achieving gender equality and working towards a world free of discriminatory gender stereotypes, so that all people can be who they want to be – regardless of their gender.

The course starts on 8th June, 2015 and runs to the 6th July, 2015. It has been designed for a broad range of people, including: gender focal points within ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs), gender leads in Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), and those working in new and traditional media roles.

Through this e-learning course participants will interrogate gender stereotypes – their origin and roots, their prevalence, their power, their impact, their intransigence. They will develop the skills to identify and critically assess gender stereotypes and their impacts, as they go about their life and work.

Participants will learn how gender stereotypes are subject to change and become familiar with specific actions to dismantle them, inspired by practice from Nigeria and elsewhere.
