PER.FOR.MA.GE 'Percorsi formativi al mainstreaming di genere'
Training programs on gender mainstreaming'
Aims and objectives
The project was funded within the EU programme PROGRESS. Main objectives of the project are: to promote awareness within the public administration on the principle of gender mainstreaming; to develop and improve the knowledge on gender issues of key stakeholders at the national level; to create a training course for the civil servants involved in decision-making and policy implementation.
Results and impact
Realisation of a training course at national and regional level Publication of a manual; realisation of a final conference to raise awareness on the topic. However, it was a stand-alone project and there's no evidence on what extent the skills transferred during the programme have been taken into account by policy makers after it.
Equal Opportunities Department
The training programme involved three modules of activities: development of legislation on gender equality; implementation of a gender culture within public administration; and implementation of gender budgeting. After the course, a manual on GM methods targeted on civil servants at local and national level have been published.
