The Gender Mainstreaming School held a two-day training on Gender Oriented Governance.

The participants discussed gender-oriented governance as a component of good governance of public authorities, international and domestic legal documents on gender equality, gender analysis methods for making effective management decisions, gender aspects of public service and service in local self-government, etc.

The trainers of the event were Oksana Yarosh, Doctor of Political Science, Associate Professor, consultant of the Institute, and Natalia Tarasenko, Head of the Board of the NGO “Parity”, Advisor to the Head of the Zhytomyr Regional State Administration on ensuring equal rights and opportunities for women and men, preventing and combating gender-based violence, and expert of the Institute on gender-oriented governance.

It should be noted that the Gender Mainstreaming School was launched in 2023 by the High School of Public Goveernance jointly with the NAUCS with the support of the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and Sweden and at the initiative of the Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration and the Government Commissioner for Gender Policy.

In August-September, 15 public servants of category A and 86 of categories B and C were trained under this educational project.

The online course “Gender Approach in Public Administration” is currently being prepared as part of the public servants’ advanced training programme. The course is being developed by the Institute’s experts in cooperation with the National Agency for Civil Service and the High School.

This year, for the third time, the Richelieu Forum for Public Service held a seminar on gender equality, which was dedicated to the transformation of women’s leadership in times of war.

It is worth noting that the number of topics and programmes on state gender policy is growing every year. The interest of public servants in them is also growing. Last year, more than 5,000 people received training on gender equality and non-discrimination at regional training centres and the High School of Public Governance.
