Online Course: Engaging Men and Boys in Gender Equality Programming

Since the 1990s, gender equality advocates have increasingly urged humanitarian and development organizations to engage men and boys as a complement to empowering women and girls. This e-learning course offered by the Global Human Rights Education and Training Center (HREA) introduces participants to principles, strategies, normative frameworks and policy approaches that have emerged from this work. Examining critical concepts such as masculinity, patriarchy and intersectionality, the course discusses why a holistic approach is central to achieving gender equality and explores the relationship between gender equality, sustainable development and human rights. Through case studies, it will also look at how practitioners can use these key concepts to transform gender relations and overcome gender inequalities faced by women and men. Participants will think critically about how men and boys can serve both as change agents and as target groups in realizing gender equality and gender justice for all. This course will focus on the lessons learned by organizations that have carried out gender equality programs that have engaged men and boys in fields such as gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive health and rights, domestic work and caregiving, education, income generation and economic empowerment of women.

This certificate course involves approximately 30 hours of reading, discussion, webinars and quizzes, and is offered over a six-week period. Click here for more details.
