GENIA Toolkit for Promoting Gender Equality in Education

Download the whole toolkit in English (PDF)

The GENIA Toolkit is a collection of resources for use by gender focal points and education planners and implementers to promote gender equality and mainstream gender in the education system.

This fourth revised version of the toolkit (originally designed in 2003 when the Gender in Education Network in Asia (GENIA) was set up) is the output of the recent process of updating. The toolkit has been designed so that it can be used at different times, depending on your needs: when you want to know more about gender equality in education, when you want to analyze the gender sensitivity of a project you are working on, when you want to advocate for more gender equality in your organization, when you visit a school and wish to assess the gender responsiveness of its staff, when you want to organize a gender training session to sensitize your staff, etc. There are multiple occasions when you can use it! The toolkit format has been designed to allow you to easily print or copy the tools and distribute them. You can also laminate them to ensure they are well protected and last long.
