Gender Equality eLearning Programme


Welcome to the UNESCO Gender Equality eLearning Programme Version 1! © UNESCO

The content of this eLearning Programme has been developed by the Division for Gender Equality in the Office of the Director-General throughout the implementation of UNESCO’s “Capacity Development and Training in Gender Mainstreaming Programme” launched in September 2005.

This eLearning Programme contains 6 modules, each taking approximately 15 minutes to complete. Every module includes, in additional to the core content, quizzes, links to relevant documents or web sites and references for further reading to expand learning in each topic area.

Printable versions of the modules are available. Please click below to access them.

For staff members in field offices with limited internet access, a CD-ROM is also available. Please send an email to the contact address below with your name, address and requested number of copies.

As the Division is committed to developing an eLearning resource that responds to UNESCO's staff learning needs, we would very much appreciate receiving your feedback on each module. An online survey has been set up for this purpose for each module, accessible here below. Comments collected through this means will help us design Version 2 of the eLearning Programme, to be released in the first months of 2010.
