Training for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment
Training for gender equality and women’s empowerment is an essential component for UN Women’s commitment to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Training for gender equality enhances knowledge and skills, while providing techniques and resources to improve the performance and quality of our actions to bring about positive change for all and create an equitable and peaceful society.
UN Women’s training and capacity development approach are guided by key international normative instruments, in particular:
- Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW)
- Beijing Platform for Action
The UN Women Training Centre provides high-quality training courses, programmes and resources on key issues related to UN Women’s priorities as well as emerging topics. We foster and employ innovative, participatory learning approaches and methodologies. We work with diverse partners around the world to ensure the quality and effectiveness of our training services and products.
