The #MeToo movement has shown us just how pervasive violence and harassment is in many workplaces. For businesses, creating a safer work environment with equal opportunities for all is the best way to foster worker wellbeing and to ensure lasting business success.

Our gender awareness e-learning course is designed for managers and executives who want to understand the mechanisms underneath gender-based discrimination. It is based on international standards and conventions, such as the 2019 ILO Convention on Violence and Harrassment in the World of Work.

Using avatars and storylines, it starts from the contextual and societal factors and zooms in specific risks and circumstances in the workplace.


What is included in the course?

Participants will receive an essential education regarding gender awareness. Carefully designed, interactive and based on state-of-the-art research. The e-learning includes:

  • Introduction to gender and gender based violence and discrimination
  • Reasons that lead to gender based violence and discrimination (including intersectionality)
  • The impacts of gender based violence and discrimination

After completing the course, participants will obtain a certificate of participation.

Why should I improve my gender awareness?

Well-founded knowledge regarding gender and gender based violence and discrimination helps to deconstruct existing assumptions. It is the tool to build a more conscious and therefore equal and safer world and working environment.

Who should sign up for this course?

This course is most relevant for those working in management and  HR. The course is particularly relevant for organizations that have a higher risk of harassment and violence in the workplace.

Please note that for social auditors we developed a separate e-learning program that provides auditor techniques to detect gendered discrimination, harrassment and violence in the workplace. Learn more.
