Feminist Edge: Professional Training for Gender Professionals


October 13, 2023

KIT - Royal Tropical Institute

The gender team at KIT – Royal Tropical Institute, has launched the latest Feminist Edge training, offering professional development for gender trainers that re-captures and re-imagines gender training. As a feminist project, establishing a new approach to training for gender equality, KIT repositions training for gender equality as a strategy to challenge and engender mainstream development and support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The programme addresses the need to (re)claim autonomous spaces for feminist knowledge production and challenges development policy makers and practitioners to re-think how to address social and gender inequity to ensure that “no one is left behind.” Feminist Edge focusses both on the practice of gender training and on its conceptual underpinnings.

Dates: 12 February – 9 August 2024

Cost: EUR 5.950

Funding application deadline: November 20 2023
