In many developing countries, women are viewed as second-class citizens. Even though women often have a heavier workload as caretakers of the home, they have very little influence or authority in their house and communities. This unbalanced societal power often leads to fewer opportunities for women for education and work, and can also lead to domestic abuse. This Gender Sensitive Management Training course is designed to open up communications between the sexes to bring mutual understanding and respect of each other’s’ roles. The program starts with employing local experts on gender issues who have a clear understanding of the problem within the current social and cultural context to help create and lead training sessions. These sessions facilitate discussions that highlight positive practices between men and women, and expose areas that need improved understanding. Staring in two groups and later coming together in one discussion, both genders discuss the various roles, expectations, and the importance of both genders. Participants also have the chance to share experiences when they have felt empowered or dis-empowered, and how those experiences relate to their own personal role within their households and society. Finally, brainstorming sessions are led to consider what changes could be made to foster an environment of respect, dignity, and understanding for both genders.

- Define the role of gender in organizations and in the society
