From November 10 to 14, 2008 a train-the-trainer workshop on Gender Mainstreaming and Diversity Management in South-East Europe will take place in Berlin. Initiated and ran by Claudia Neusüß and Christian Raschke and coordinated by Ruth Slomski (ILE Berlin) the workshop is addressed specifically to gender diversity trainers, experts and activists.
The German Diversity Professional Association for Gender-Competent Education and Consulting, the Heinrich Böll Foundation, the Family Planning Center in Bratislava, the EFKA foundation in Crakow, and the Gender Diversity Associaton are partners of ILE-Berlin and participated in preparing the workshop.
The various sucesses, resistances, conflicts and needs of the participants with respect to ongoing learning, exchange and networking will be the focus of the workshop.
We especially would like to invite men to this workshop and ask our european women colleagues to encourage (male) colleagues to join the workshop in Berlin!
Best practice examples for implementing gender diversity into existing systems and structures of society and organisations will be reflected and used as learning fields in terms of implementing gender and diversity. The pest practice examples will be from different national backgrounds.
