Topic description

This topic will consider gender mainstreaming as a strategy for the achievement of gender equality. In order to develop a critical understanding of doing gender mainstreaming, students will investigate how this strategy has been adopted by international agencies, non-government organisations, government agencies and community based organisations. Opportunities will be provided for students to develop their own skills to mainstream gender into organisations, policies, plans and projects through the application of selected gender mainstreaming tools to case studies from Australia and other countries.

contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
