UNDP Regional Service for Africa will be holding a five days Virtual BRIDGE Regional Training on Gender Equality and Elections for relevant electoral stakeholders including National Electoral Management Bodies, political parties, CSOs and key UNDP Staff to build their capacities in the area of Gender and Elections. In total 25 participants from ten countries including members of AWLN National Chapters will attend the workshop. The workshop will be held using Zoom platform from 14th to 18th September 2020.

The training will also provide an opportunity for exchange of ideas and best practices between member states and serve as a platform to establish and expand a pool of experts and community of practice in the area of gender and election.

During the workshop, participants are expected to learn and gain knowledge about mainstreaming gender equality throughout the electoral cycle so that they can adapt their experiences to the national context.
