GE Academy completed its first Workshop in Dublin
On Tuesday November 5th, GE Academy organized its first live training session, a workshop in Dublin, Ireland. The title of the workshop was “Gender Action Plans: getting them right and making them happen” and it was organised in cooperation with the Trinity Centre for Gender Equality and Leadership, Trinity College Dublin. The session’s aim was to provide participants a unique opportunity to cultivate approaches for overcoming challenges related to developing and implementing gender action plans; and the facilitator of the event was one of the leading gender experts in Europe, Dr Maxime Forest.
Based on an attendee centered set of interactive approaches Dr Forest guided the participants through collaborative activities to render them more informed, enabled and equipped to develop gender action plans that are strategically relevant and appropriate to their academic setting. GE Academy’s first workshop focused on delivering a dynamic, peer learning experience for the participants by securing the contribution of facilitators of great expertise.
The completion of the event produced not only better informed individuals, but also encouraging feelings on the GE Academy Consortium about the upcoming training activities. Next stop on this gender equality fostering journey is planned on 18 and 19 November in Barcelona, Spain with another workshop on how to face the resistances holding back the implementation of gender action planning.
