The Gender Unit at DUCE has been urged to organize more workshops on gender based analysis and approaches at the College.
A call has been made by academic members of staff on day two of the gender workshop in which the academics were introduced to new approaches to conducting gender based researches.
The workshop was organized jointly by DUCE Gender Unit and Trinity College Dublin (TCD, Ireland) under the GATE project supported by the Irish government.
The Coordinator of the GATE project, Dr. Perpetua Urio, said the workshop was instrumental in that it brought together academic members of staff from different faculties and disciplines at the College.
‘Gender is not a one faculty or unit issue but touches different disciples in different ways,’ Dr. Urio said hailing the participants adding that the multidimensional nature of the subject called for members from different faculties and disciplines to work together.
The Coordinator of the Gender Unit, Dr. Ikupa Moses, said the unit has plans to conduct more gender based trainings to enable faculty members incorporate gender analyses in their areas of specializations.
The main facilitator of the workshop, Dr. Susan Murphy, from TCD thanked the participants and the organizing committee for good organization.
In a special way Dr. Murphy encouraged the participants to broaden their research bases by engaging in researches on gender and gender mainstreaming.
