We design and deliver our own elearning courses and resources. These are targeted at gender professionals and those with responsibilities for working through a gender lens and designed to be most timely and relevant for people in Nigeria.

About this course:
After the success of the ground-breaking research from the Voices 4 Change, Nigeria Landmark Research Report: ‘Being a Man in Nigeria’ this e-learning course will help participants to explore further why we should and how best to engage men towards gender equality. They will develop the skills to identify and critically assess the ways in which conventional masculinity acts as a barrier to gender equality, and how new forms of gender equitable masculinities are emerging. Participants will learn how gender inequality, whilst overwhelmingly negatively impacting women, also negatively impacts men and boys themselves.
