This is a self-paced module jointly developed by AVPN and The Global Center for Gender Equality (GCfGE).
About this module:
This module, “Building a Common Understanding”, is the first of two introductory modules in the “Intention to Action: Empowering a More Gender Equal Asia” gender course. The course is part of a wider curricula series “Introduction to Gender and Philanthropy” and more modules will be available soon.
“Building a Common Understanding” will help network members to build a common understanding of gender and how it shapes our lives.
Learners will walk through a guided consideration of a fictional character’s life to explore how gender norms, roles, and expectations affect their experiences and can appear as bias and discrimination, as well as interact with data illustrating how this has real-world implications across different Asian contexts.
Participants will also hear from Asia Gender Network (AGN) members about their own personal experiences at various stages of their lives and in their careers.
This course is for anyone who wants to gain a basic understanding of gender and how it impacts you in your life and the lives of those you serve with your philanthropy.
