OPEN WEBINAR IN ENGLISH Feminist pedagogies and training for gender equality: a paradox?
What makes the principles of feminist pedagogies feminist? Especially when they can in fact be applied in training in ways that contradict gender justice and social transformation. Moreover, if gender training intends to disrupt dominant understandings of “gender”, how does this harmonise with what is commonly understood as feminist pedagogies? KIT Royal Tropical Institute and UN Women Training Centre are pleased to invite you to the public open webinar Feminist pedagogies and training for gender equality: a paradox?, where our team of trainers Maitrayee Mukhopadhyay, Franz Wong and Leticia Berrizbeitia will discuss these tensions in gender training using the Professional Development Programme for Gender Trainers as an illustration of how such paradoxes may arise and how they can be navigated. This event will also act as an informative session on the programme that is currently receiving applications for its second edition.

This training includes different activities such as moderated on-line learning, remote monitoring of the participants tasks, as well as 2 face-to-face workshops in KIT facilities in Amsterdam. The second edition will take place from 22 October 2018 until the 30 April 2019, encompassing a total period of six-months. The first cohort was made up of 25 participants from 20 different countries, 15 of whom were part of or were linked to an international organisation. The programme was evaluated in a highly postive way by the participants, who agreed that the learning objectives were met and who would recommend the course to others working in training.
