How can an intersectional approach be applied throughout the project cycle management?
WIDE-Gendertraining (in English)
Facilitator & trainer: Patricia Muñoz Cabrera
Even though current development policies and strategies aim towards the implementation of an intersectional approach, focus remains largely on gender approaches. These approaches tend to overlook other intersecting forms/mechanisms of inequality (for example gender/age/ability/income/ethnicity) which further disempower certain groups of women and men across the life cycle and accentuate social inequalities. These intersecting mechanisms have a negative impact on women’s and men’s daily lives and in the enjoyment of their fundamental human rights in development.
A guiding question in this workshop will be how to best integrate a ‘leave no on behind’ approach in our projects/programmes, and which tools can help us ensure that the intersectional approach (including language and tools) is respectful of contextual specificities, transformative and empowering those who will benefit from it (individuals and communities). The workshop will offer a space to raise your practical questions, learn from concrete examples and experiences of the facilitator, and encourage intersectional knowledge-building and sharing among the participants.
