These guiding principles present the minimum standards that need to be followed if institutions wish to design effective skills development interventions. They are aimed at authorities that commission gender-equality training, as well as their respective staff.
Commissioning authorities play a key role in planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating gender-equality competence development initiatives. These guidelines do not promote a one-size-fits-all approach; instead, they summarise the necessary common denominators for all gender-equality competence development initiatives. Taking into account the specific roles and needs of the commissioning authorities, these guidelines offer specific guidance for each stage of the process.
