Dear UN Volunteers,

In the spirit of the International Women’s Day, we want to draw you attention to the course on Volunteerism and Gender Equality, jointly developed by UNV and UNWOMEN and available on UNV e-Campus’, “During Assignment” section:  https://learning.unv.org/course/view.php?id=73

The course module on volunteerism and gender will help you familiarize yourself with the importance of gender as a crosscutting issue in volunteerism, in the context of the development agenda 2030, in particular SDG5 on gender equality. The topics in the module address central issues regarding volunteerism and gender, such as:

1. Identify gender gaps and gender stereotypes related to volunteerism

2. Use tools, strategies and resources to promote full participation of women and men in volunteerism

3. Identify opportunities for volunteerism to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment
