BCCIC Webinar – Introduction to Gender Analysis for International Non-Profits
March 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join us on March 21st for a webinar on the topic of gender analysis provided by Dr. Laura Parisi and Dr. Astrid V. Pérez Piñán, from the University of Victoria (see below for bios).
What is gender-based analysis and what does it mean to work using a gender lens in international development? What are some of the tools and practices available to mainstream gender? This introductory webinar on gender and international development will provide an opportunity to learn some of the foundational concepts used when working through a gender lens, including an overview of gender mainstreaming. The workshop will consider some of the practical tools available to enhance your work when mainstreaming gender, including the use of gender-based analysis plus intersectionality (GBA+). It will draw on concrete examples in the NGO sector to illustrate good practices and will also discuss some of the challenges often faced by development practitioners wishing to mainstream gender in their work.
