DESCRIPTION
Hey there! Ready to spark some real change in your community and pick up some incredible insights? Dive into our online course focused on transforming youth organizations into places where everyone, no matter their gender, feels valued and included. This course isn’t just a learning journey – it’s a hands-on adventure that’s both eye-opening and critically important. Engage with dynamic exercises and scenarios drawn from the real world.

 

Why This Course Matters Now More Than Ever:

Gender equality isn’t just a nice idea – it’s essential for a fair and thriving society. Despite progress, we still live in a world where gender can dictate opportunities, rights, and voices. This course, crafted by a passionate team from Spain, Portugal, and Romania working on the international project “OBLIO – One Bridge for Lifelong Inclusive Organizations,” is your opportunity to be part of the solution.

Learning objectives:
You’ll dive deep into understanding why gender inequalities persist and how they surface in everyday life, especially in youth organizations. We’ll arm you with practical tools to pinpoint different types of gender inequalities and understand their impact on individuals and communities and develop strategies to address them effectively. And more importantly to effectively diagnose and recognize gender inequalities in your own organizations.

Together, we’ll construct action plans to implement changes and foster equality.

You’ll also become a change agent, learning how to inspire others and spread the word about the importance of gender equality. This isn’t just about making a statement – it’s about creating a lasting impact.

We get it, life’s busy. That’s why we’ve designed this course to be flexible, fitting around your schedule. Expect to dedicate some hours a week – a small investment for a big leap in making your community a fairer place for everyone.
