Policy and Gender Workshop

90-871

Units: 3

Description: While other courses examine policies that disproportionately impact women, this "micro" course will look at a range of current policy issues and explore the previously under-examined gender aspects, and impacts, of these policies. Students will be exposed to research and various tools used to conduct gender analyses. Using a foundational understanding of gender analysis, students will review current policy proposals, analyze and report on how gender plays a role in the policy implementation, and make recommendations to improve the proposals so that they will achieve greater gender equality.
