What does it mean to be a man in Nigeria?
GenderHub.org announces the launch of its new FREE e-learning course tagged ‘Engaging men towards gender equality: why and how should we do it?’.
The course will address the following: “What does is it mean to be a man in Nigeria? What is the potential value of working with men towards gender equality? What are the most effective strategies that we can use to mobilise together? What do gender-equitable masculinities look like?
It will also help participants to explore further why we should and how best to engage men towards gender equality. They will develop the skills to identify and critically assess the ways in which conventional masculinity acts as a barrier to gender equality, and how new forms of gender equitable masculinities are emerging.
Participants will learn how gender inequality, whilst overwhelmingly negatively impacting women, also negatively impacts men and boys themselves. The course aims to inspire participants to become committed to take action, including advocating and mobilising with others to engage men in gender equality, drawing from practice in Nigeria and elsewhere.”

Gender Hub aims to strengthen the cadre of gender expertise and its application in Nigeria.
