The executive short course is about Gender Equality and Women Empowerment. Women are still often worse off than men, and therefore including a focus on women empowerment will be instrumental to closing the gender gap.

Women are obviously entitled to equal access to economic options, business and resources but in reality, there are many factors that obstruct or prevent such equal access.

In order for gender equality to improve, women’s and men’s needs and opportunities need to be addressed not only at community level but also system-wide.

"As a believer in the power of education to foster social change, I was eager to deepen my knowledge on gender issues and to develop practical skills that could help address these challenges in my country."
Mr. Ibrahim Jamal Azeez (Iraq), participant of the June 2024 programme

Attention for gender and women empowerment related issues and institutionalisation is therefore important. The program will address a number of relevant issues, ranging from strategy and policy towards agency and constraints at individual level and ways to overcome these.

"When I applied to the position as the “Energy Gender Focal Point” in Jordan, I aimed at expanding my knowledge and enriching my skills in these spheres so that I could make a positive impact in my community and the working environment."
Ms. Rasha Marar (Jordan) participant of the June 2024 programme
