Co-hosted by the UN Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI) and the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE), this webinar introduced the INEE Guidance Note on Gender.

Globally, only 1 in 4 adolescent refugees makes it to secondary school and for every 10 refugee boys enrolled, there are fewer than 7 girls. The world’s children are being failed, with gender barriers in education pushing marginalized girls yet further behind. The question is, how can we as a global education community move forward by advancing gender equality in and through education?

The new Guidance Note on Gender is designed to help equip all who work in education in emergencies (EiE) to do just that.

This webinar provides an overview of the Guidance Note, with presentations featuring key learnings and case studies on gender-responsive programming including: community mobilization for girls’ education in refugee communities in Kenya, gender-sensitive M&E in EiE in Somalia, and gender-responsive pedagogy teacher training in Mozambique and South Sudan.
