Recording of the session

The INASP Gender Mainstreaming Toolkit is a comprehensive resource designed to support universities, higher education institutions, and research institutes in initiating gender mainstreaming processes. Developed collaboratively by Sue Gollifer, Siobhan Gorman, Flora Fabian, and the University of Dodoma (UDOM) in partnership with INASP, the toolkit employs a participatory approach to identify and address organizational gender gaps. It provides a structured framework for creating a gender action plan, launching formal gender mainstreaming processes within institutions, and fostering an open and safe space for participants to share diverse personal experiences and opinions. The toolkit is organized around six modules, guiding participants through a learning journey from gender sensitization to the development of concrete action plans.
