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:
This e-learning course will help participants to interrogate gender stereotypes – their origin and roots, their prevalence, their power, their impact, their intransigence. They will develop the skills to identify and critically assess gender stereotypes and their impacts, as they go about their life and work. Participants will learn how gender stereotypes are subject to change and become familiar with specific actions to dismantle them, inspired by practice to date from Nigeria and other countries across Africa and elsewhere.
