Final iteration of the NATO GFP course for 2021Date: (13-12-2021)
What is the link between gender, conflict and security? Why is gender mainstreaming key to operational effectiveness? How to integrate gender perspectives in planning and decision-making? These were key aspects of discussions during the December 2021 Gender Focal Point (GFP) course. The course took place online and provided a platform for constructive exchange of knowledge and experience among a group of learners from the NATO command structure, and NATO Allied and Partner nations’ armed forces.
The GFP course aims to enable personnel to successfully perform in support of the integration of gender perspectives within their functional area and respective chain of command. A balanced mixture of live interactive sessions and individual and collective exercises facilitated deliberations on existing policy framework and tools for gender mainstreaming, and on the role of GFPs within NATO’s gender advisory structure.
The CMDR COE should like to thank the team of subject-matter instructors and facilitators for their valuable contributions to the organisation and delivery of this learning experience.
We also warmly welcome the new cohort of certified GFPs to the wider community of practice!
