--All about the "Training of Trainers (TOT) for Gender in Co-operatives"
Is your co-operative interested in implementing a gender program? Does your co-op want to enjoy the social and economic benefits of being a gender-fair and gender-sensitive co-op? AWCF invites all Philippine co-ops to join the:
"Training of Trainers (TOT) for Gender in Co-operatives"
WHERE and WHEN: To be conducted in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao regions, Philippines. Venues and dates in Visayas and Mindanao to be announced soon.
WHO: For co-op's Gender Committee and Education Committee members, Gender Focal Persons (GFPs), human resource trainers, and other trainers who want to enable change and make change work for the continuous development of Philippine co-operatives
WHAT: Training Objective: After the training, the participants’ knowledge, attitudes, skills, and capacity as gender trainers will be enhanced thus enabling them to organize, conduct and manage gender equality (GE)-related training activities in co-ops.
Specifically, the participants will:
• Understand and differentiate sex and gender, determine factors that influence gender, and reflect to build awareness of their gender situation that affects relations with one another and with the co-operatives
• Commit to make changes in themselves and put equal value on men and women – their roles, contributions, rights, benefits; and break down gender issues and apply the new ideas to respond to the call of bringing about gender equality (GE) at home, work, and in the co-ops
• Have better understanding of the principles and concepts of the adult education training process, and be more skillful in the selection of appropriate training approaches and methodologies for effective conduct of gender training events
• Deepen their commitment in preparing a GE training plan of action to promote greater gender awareness within the co-ops.
ORGANIZER: AWCF is a resource center and advocacy body on gender and co-op development. Since its founding in 1990, AWCF’s activities in the Philippines and five other Asian countries have aimed at helping support co-operative growth through the advocacy and practice of GE in co-ops. Toward this goal, one of AWCF’s foremost activities is giving training to gender trainers, GFPs, gender advocates, and role models who will be GE champions in their co-operatives and will, in turn, train and inspire even more gender-aware co-operators. AWCF has extensive experience in gender mainstreaming in co-operatives in the Philippines and in Asia. It works with various in-country and international agencies in designing and implementing gender and co-op development programs and projects.
