11 - 22 November 2013
For the last twelve years, the International Training Centre of the ILO has been offering successful high level training activities aimed at increasing awareness of gender equality principles and at providing practical tools for their implementation. It has thus become a unique hub offering opportunities of gaining knowledge and sharing best practices in the field of gender mainstreaming.
The 2013 edition will be offered in partnership with the UN Women Global Training Centre.
The first (2011) Gender Academy was a consolidation of this experience.

The 2013 edition of the Gender Academy is addressed to development professionals from all over the world with a view to offering an exclusive forum for discussion and a platform for new experiences. It is recommended for specialists and practitioners who already have familiarity with gender concepts. The format of the Academy makes it a special occasion for updating and upgrading professional knowledge through exposure to high-level international expertise.
International experts, academicians and practitioners will present and discuss key themes in a series of master classes with simultaneous interpretation in English, French and Spanish. In addition, a range of elective workshops will offer additional insight into specific subjects, develop skills and provide room for application and knowledge-sharing.
We are proposing this year an enticing formula, with two specific segments (one week each) to build up a unique continuum.
The first week will focus on development aspects of gender mainstreaming, while the second week will explore themes related to equal opportunities in work-related contexts. Click on the tag "Programme of the Academy" to know more about the specific contents as they develop.
Once again, the focus of the Academy will be on "how to", critically reviewing available tools and practical methods.
Participants will:be exposed to advanced international knowledge and best practices in areas related to the promotion of gender equality at work
The Academy is designed for development professionals including: government officials, representatives of employers and workers' organisations, international organizations, such as the agencies of the UN system and the international financial institutions, the private sector, academia and civil society organizations.
The Gender Academy lasts two weeks and consists of a combination of :master classes and round tables (in plenary session, with simultaneous interpretation) from leading international experts in the field
A detailed description of of each session is available here: http://gender.itcilo.org/academy/index.php?mod=program
