The GREAT vision is based on a premise that agricultural research projects are often designed with little consideration of how the research outputs, technologies and interventions will impact both men and women. Researchers are increasingly expected to design projects that deliver equitable outcomes, yet there is only limited or inappropriate gender training out there for agricultural researchers. Considering gender in research requires thinking differently, and not just applying tools. GREAT doesn't just teach participants how to use tools, but also how to change the way they look at their research, to be able to identify relevant gender research questions, or potential points of negative or positive impact for women and men, and how to address these.
We offer two course options – joining our yearly Cohort Courses, or working with us to design a Custom Course tailored to the needs of your project, research institution or organization. Whichever option you choose, we can help train your institution's or your project's researchers to be more inclusive, responsive and effective.
