GE Academy goes to Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris

The team is back from its summer holidays. Before, we kick-start an intensive new season for the Gender Equality Academy, we would like to share with you a few moments from our last meeting in Paris. Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique hosted the second project meeting, where partners discussed the next steps for Gender Equality Academy.

Kalypso Sepou and Franz Wong in Paris

While designing our programme from its topics to the different format, we invited two members of the Advisory Board to provide us with practical experience on gender trainings; the hinders and the opportunities to master a gender training. Dr. Franz Wong is a senior social development and gender equity advisor with KIT Gender at KIT the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam. Dr. Kalypso Sepou, Head of the Strategic Planning Unit at the Research Promotion Foundation, is a nominated delegate in the Standing Working Group on Gender in Research and Innovation.

What is coming up?

We are kicking off our first pilot trainings, so we are looking for:

  • Potential host organisations
  • Participants for our train-the-trainers session in Berlin (coming soon)
  • Participants for our trainings (including in person-training, workshops, webinars, etc.)
