The purpose of the course is first to refresh knowledge about gender issues, with a focus on three topics:
- The rights of women and girls in local communities;
- Encouraging girls to continue their studies in engineering;
- Writing and carrying out gender policies.
Because of the online format of the course, reading material and discussions on fora will be combined to exchange experiences and interact on these topics. The second part of the course deals with the development of a plan for your own gender related activity. Here, the following topics will be treated:
- Problems and objectives;
- Expected results and work plan;
- Presentable plan.
