For the advancement of gender equality and empowerment of women and girls around the world.
The GenderPro Capacity Building & Credentialing Program, hosted at the George Washington University in partnership with UNICEF, is professionalizing the gender and development field and equipping development and humanitarian professionals with the skills they need to meaningfully address gender in their work.
GenderPro is a rigorous, competency-based educational & credentialing program for mid to senior level development and humanitarian professionals.
GenderPro was created to prepare gender professionals to perform their work more effectively, using internationally recognized best practices & approaches and backed by field-recognized credentials.
" One of the things that I learned from the GenderPro course is that there are different levels of working on gender – gender blind, neutral, sensitive, responsive and transformative. I believe that we are mostly working on gender sensitive programs and that my colleagues are gender sensitive but I think that we have to go beyond. We have to start transforming. We have to start working together. We have to start using the same language. We have to start involving men and women in order to achieve change and equality."
