Want to learn more about gender analysis but don’t have time or money to take a week long training?

Take the FREE Inter-Agency Standing Committee’s (IASC) training on gender and humanitarian relief, Different Needs – Equal Opportunities: Increasing Effectiveness Of Humanitarian Action For Women, Girls, Boys And Men.

Free Training Video

It’s one of the best online trainings I’ve taken.  It is fun, interactive and packed full of excellent examples about gender and foreign assistance from real humanitarian relief programs.  The course provides the basic steps a humanitarian worker must take to ensure gender equality in programming.  But, even if you have no intention of becoming a humanitarian aid worker, this course will give you basic information on the core issues of gender and walk you through a gender analysis framework.

It takes three hours to complete, but is highly interactive, providing information and scenarios to enable you to practice developing gender-sensitive programming. This training is based on the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Gender Handbook and related IASC guidelines, including the Guidelines for Gender-based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Settings and others.
