Many of the participants for Interagency Gender Working Group (IGWG) trainings come from a technical perspective. Whereas they might find theory interesting, they are most engaged when they have the opportunity to directly apply new knowledge to their current work. Therefore, the activities in this training were designed to allow participants to see what gender integration looks like and for participants to work in groups to think through the application of new concepts and brainstorm ways to improve future programs using specific examples and cases.
A specific set of frameworks and methods are provided for participants to use in order to integrate gender components into their projects and programs. The Programmatic Guidance presentations and tools assist participants with the what, while the Gender Analysis and Integration activities will help participants with the how.
