Reading Time: 4 min read

The Commonwealth of Learning’s (COL) fourth offering of the Gender Equality and Women Empowerment (GEWE) Course is now open for registration and commences on 25 March 2024. The course is designed to meet the increasing need for competencies of government officials, policymakers, organisational staff and individuals to effect personal and collective transformation in promoting gender equality.

Over eight weeks, participants will learn to use various frameworks and tools to integrate a human rights perspective into the workplace and the community. The course will examine best practices in programming for gender equality and empowerment against a backdrop of the humanitarian issues of our times and the push to meet SDG 5 on gender equality by 2030.

Each week a one-hour webinar will be held to enable participants to discuss pertinent topics in each module and to allow for diverse voices to share their experiences. The course materials are accessible to participants using assistive technologies and those who need translation of materials into different languages.

Previous participants commented that:

“The knowledge gained has helped me to perceive things differently in the home as well as at work. The course content has unveiled things which have made (my) organisation competent, especially in responsive planning and delivery of programs.”- Florida

 “The course gave me very good conceptual knowledge to understand policies, framework, formats to measure the impact of program implementation on the most vulnerable section of the society.”- Rodrick

This updated course offering contains integrated feedback from previous cohorts and includes thought-provoking case studies and links to online materials as well as more user-friendly content. For each module completed, the participant earns a badge, allowing them to receive recognition for as few or as many modules as they wish.
