Training for women’s empowerment is an essential component for UN Women’s commitment to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Training for gender equality is a transformative process that aims to provide knowledge, techniques and tools to develop skills and changes in attitudes and behaviours. It is a continuous and long-term process that requires political will and commitment of all parties in order to create inclusive societies that recognize the need to promote gender equality.
Training is a tool, strategy, and means to effect individual and collective transformation towards gender equality by raising awareness and encouraging learning, knowledge-building and skills development. It helps women to understand the role gender plays and to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for their daily lives and work.
