Gender at Work is actively advancing the theoretical foundations on gender equality and has started engaging with several universities and international organizations of repute, helping them enhance their capacities to promote research, review curriculum and offer new courses on gender equality.
The training is grounded on feminist principles and pedagogies. It employs adult learning, participatory, adaptive, emancipatory, experiential and interactive approaches. The training fosters critical examination of power, privileges, and biases. Additionally, the course seeks to provide participants with a strategic set of tools and ‘lenses’ that they can use as they implement their plans to lead for gender equality and women’s rights.
Gender at Work has partnered with The UN Women Training Centre to offer a course, ‘Transformative Leadership for Gender Equality and Women’s Rights’. The objective of this course is to strengthen capacity and knowledge of managers and organizational leaders to advance gender equality, women’s empowerment, and women’s rights agendas within their organizational contexts and mandates.
The future of businesses is inclusive. Without a gender lens to comprehend the impact of business policies and practices, leadership will be unable to minimize discrimination against women in the workplaces, retain talent, increase profits and make a positive impact to India’s GDP. The Genpact Centre for Women’s Leadership (GCWL), in collaboration with the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) and Gender at Work, is offering a week long course that aims to introduce participants to the linkages between women, business and human rights. The course, a blend of theory and practical guidance, will equip participants with the skills to develop strategies and assess business operation that are consistent with international standards on women’s rights.
