Executive Development Programme 17-21 June 2013, London
Prosperity through Empowerment – Advancing Gender Equality in Development and Governance
Gender inequality slows down economic and social development and constitutes an obstacle to good governance. Without harnessing the full human capital and economic potential of women, countries cannot prosper. Similarly , studies have shown that women’s lack of access to education and health services hinders poverty reduction. Empowering women and advancing gender equality is therefore a long – term driver for growth and competitiveness in a globalised world. It leads to inclusive and sustainable development, faster poverty reduction and speedier progress toward MDG attainment. Gender integration also adds transparency and openness into the policy process. Gender Mainstreaming is not just the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do.
This programme will enhance participants’ understanding of the ways in which gender matters for effective policy-making and governance. It will familiarise participants with different practical tools and techniques for facilitating gender analysis and integration, and elucidate how gender can be incorporated into all aspects of development processes. It will explore the benefits and outcomes of gender mainstreaming, familiarise participants with lessons of international best practice and highlight how these can help address challenges they face in their home organisations. The programme will be delivered by a team of international experts in the field of gender, development and public policy.
This programme is designed for professionals involved in policy planning, implementation and evaluation, including policy makers, development practitioners, public service managers, parliament staff and government officials.
