I Know Gender Module 16: Gender Equality and Migration

Gender Equality and Migration is a brand-new online training module, developed by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and UN Women. This module helps learners understand how gender shapes every stage of the migrant journey, and why gender equality matters in migration.


Gender Equality and Migration becomes the 16th module of the UN Women's landmark I Know Gender e-learning course. It is a unique chance to step into the shoes of migrants and see things from their perspective. Through this module, participants will learn about international migration trends from a gender perspective, how to conduct a gender analysis and how to start mainstreaming gender equality into their everyday work at every stage of the migration cycle.
