NCLW concludes its first training workshop on gender

5-2-2014

The National Commission for Lebanese Women (NCLW) concluded yesterday its first gender training workshop which was organised at its training centre in Baabda with the distribution of certificates to the eleven women trainees who completed the training which included an overview of key concepts as well as mainstreaming gender in programmes and within organisations.
The gender training program consisted of six training sessions which took place between October and November 2013.  The subjects covered key gender concepts, analytical frameworks, gender and development, organizational analysis,  gender responsive budgeting and international human rights framework and international development collaboration.

The regional gender consultant at the UNHCR, Nada Darwazeh, noted that this is a unique programme since it involves building and sharing experiences according to international standards which the participants can then apply within their institutions.  She added that understanding gender analytical frameworks will also help in identifying gaps in relationships and in accessing equal opportunities.  She also insisted on the need to revise institutional ways of working so as to change discriminatory environments and ensure that both women and men’s strategic needs are addressed.
To be noted that the NCLW had launched this programme, which targets its members, staff and members of the gender network in ministries and public institutions, within the framework of its collaboration with the UNHCR and the UNFPA and the implementation of its women advancement strategy.
