The GENOVATE’s online learning package is designed to provide a broad overview of issues on gender competent leadership for senior leaders and managers in higher education and research institutions, academics in leadership and management positions, and candidates for managerial positions in academia. It aims to create awareness of gender equality issues in a cross-cultural context and to encourage prospective leaders to reflect on possible solutions according to their institutional needs.
GENOVATE’s online training is user-friendly and easy to follow. It features a flexible, self-paced, simple-to-use format that utilises Web tools such as java, PDF files and pop-up windows. The training is divided into four stand-alone sections, so users are free to plan their review to meet their immediate needs or interest.
Each section contains:
• PowerPoint slides highlighting research and information on gender competent leadership
• Bibliography and links and resources for further study
• A glossary of key terms
• Examples and case studies of gender competent leadership
Organisational requirements and time frames depend on context and participant numbers.
