This training aims at preparing social development specialists, researchers, consultants and partners for their new role in supporting the enforcement of the WBG’s new Gender Strategy in their operations, in particular, linking analysis, action, and outcomes to close the key gender gaps. Social development specialists are probably already convinced of the value of gender equality and have operational experience in its implementation through sectoral and regional programs. Against this background, this training will encourage a shift in the way WBG staff think about gender in their operations. There is little doubt within the WBG that the traditional gender mainstreaming approach has increased awareness among staff and clients about the importance of analyzing the gender aspects of development programs. However, evidence has also revealed the limits of mainstreaming in yielding results on the ground.
