Training on Priority Gender Equality for UNESCO Lima Office.

“Now I can work more systematically and more precisely for the inclusion of Gender Equality at the heart of our projects” declared one of the participants at the end of the training. Other colleagues also expressed their satisfaction with the training and confirmed their commitment to advocate for Gender Equality: “I feel now more confident to sensitize our partners and beneficiaries on the importance of Gender Equality” said another participant.

On July 4, 2017, the Director of the Division for Gender Equality, S. Gülser Corat, gave a training on UNESCO Priority Gender Equality to UNESCO Office in Lima. 23 colleagues participated in this one-day intensive training, which allowed them to better understand the concepts of Gender Equality and the methodologies and tools used by UNESCO to integrate Gender Equality considerations in its initiatives. The training session included a presentation by the UNESCO Office in Lima through which colleagues provided an overview of the current situation of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Peru, highlighting some trends and making use of the presence of the Division for Gender Equality to improve their understanding and identify innovative solutions for programming. DIR/ODG/GE also met bilaterally with members of the Office upon their request under the Gender Clinics scheme, and provided one-on-one advice on specific Gender Equality related work in the country.

On 5 July, DIR/ODG/GE also met with fifteen journalists to introduce UNESCO’s work in the field of Gender Equality and provide clarifications on the role that the media can play to support Gender Equality and fight against gender stereotypes, in Peru and beyond. The workshop with journalists resulted in an article being published in one of the major newspapers of the country (accessible here).
