Gender equity and empowerment are essential for organizations aiming to establish a work environment where everyone has equal access to the opportunities necessary to satisfy their needs, advance in career and achieve their full potential as contributing members of the organization as a whole. Gender Audit helps organizations assess their policies and procedures in terms of both gender equity and empowerment.
This 3-day comprehensive workshop on Gender Audit introduces the participants to the tools and methodologies used to conduct an institutional gender audit. This is a participatory workshop where the participants will be invited to reflect on how audit techniques are used to assess whether gender equity and empowerment are promoted effectively and consistently within the organization as well as its programs.
