In commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Center for Gender Equality Studies at the University of Duhok recently completed a comprehensive 6-day in-person program, in collaboration with the American Corner-Duhok. The program, held on Sundays and Mondays from November 12 to 27, 2023, addressed critical issues such as effective communication between genders, UN Resolution 1325, Sustainable Development Goal No. 5, and women's active participation in leadership, negotiations, and economic development.
Throughout the program, a distinguished panel of speakers, including experts from the University's Department of Peace and Human Rights, American Corner-Duhok, and other esteemed Academic members, led discussions on pertinent topics. Participants, drawn from various disciplines across the University, engaged in insightful exploration of different communication styles, the key provisions of UN Resolution 1325, and the targets of Sustainable Development Goal No. 5. The program also provided a nuanced understanding of the challenges and opportunities women encounter in leadership, negotiations, and economic development.
As the program concludes, participants are now equipped with a heightened awareness of gender-related issues and strategies to advocate for women's empowerment. The University of Duhok commends the commitment of all participants in fostering gender equality and sustainable development. We anticipate that the knowledge gained and connections established during this program will have a positive and lasting impact within our university community and beyond.
