Venue: Data-Afrique Training Centre, Nairobi, Kenya

In many developing countries women are viewed as second class citizens. Even though women have heavier workloads as caretakers at home, they have very little influence in their house and communities. This unbalanced societal power often leads to fewer opportunities for women education and work and can lead to domestic abuse. This gender sensitive management training course is designed to open communications between sexes to bring mutual understanding and respect of other roles. The program starts by employing local experts on gender issues who clearly understands the problem within the current social and cultural contexts to help create and lead training sessions. This session facilitates discussions that highlight positive practices between men and women and expose areas that need improved understanding. Starting in two groups and later coming into one discussion, both genders discuss various roles, expectations and importance of both genders. Participants also have the chance to share experiences when they have felt empowered or dis-powered, and how those experiences relate to their own personal roles within their households and society. Finally, brainstorming sessions are led to consider what changes could be made to foster an environment of respect, dignity and understanding for both genders.
