Basic Gender Training

The Bhutan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) in collaboration with National Commission for Women and Children (NCWC) and United Nations Development programme (UNDP) Bhutan conducted two-days Basic Gender training from 23rd – 25th December at Khuru Resort, Punakha. This training was conducted under the Sustainable Development Services (SDS) Programme, Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the private sector. A total of twenty five participants from the  BCCI, Sector Associations and a few private companies attended the training.

The main objective of the training is:

  1. to familiarize the participants on basic gender concepts and terminologies used
  2. to help them understand the international and national legal and policy framework on gender
  3. to help them understand why gender mainstreaming is important and introduce gender mainstreaming tools
  4. to understand the concept of gender analysis and equip participants with gender analysis tools
  5. to enable participants to use gender analysis tools to generate inputs in programme and planning

To assess the understanding of the gender concepts, participants were  asked to submit a prerequisite training survey form before the training and a post evaluation was also done to assess the understanding shift before and after the training.
