African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD), in collaboration with the CGIAR Generating Evidence and New Directions for Equitable Results (GENDER) Platform, is announcing the Call for the CGIAR Gender Researchers’ Leadership and Mentoring Program.
Targeting mid-career gender researchers in the One CGIAR, the Program seeks to equip participants with practical tools to increase their visibility, gain influence, and accelerate the impact of gender.
The CGIAR GENDER Platform-AWARD collaboration focuses on strengthening researchers’ capacity to influence institutional processes towards gender-equitable and socially inclusive agricultural transformation.
The CGIAR GENDER Platform, through its capacity development strategy, is working toward a world where research on gender equality drives transformation towards equitable, sustainable, productive, and climate-resilient food systems. AWARD has a long-standing commitment and track record of developing the capacity of gender research leaders to design and influence gender-equitable and sustainable agricultural development.
Delivery and expected outcomes
The Program comprises four main components including, leadership, coaching, mentoring, and networking tailored to build effective and confident gender research leaders who will advance science, policy, and practice for gender-equitable and sustainable agricultural development.
The CGIAR Gender Researchers’ Leadership and Mentoring Program seeks to enhance the visibility of researchers, improve their ability to influence change, and increase their legitimacy and relevance – and that of their gender research.
