The GREAT Project is centered around unique course design. Our courses are not like other gender trainings. We go far beyond gender sensitization, equipping researchers from diverse backgrounds with the skills to design and deliver research projects that result in better adoption, and more equitable and impactful results for the communities they serve.
We offer two styles of courses to fit your needs. The GREAT Cohort Courses are rigorous trainings that equip participants with applied theory and hands-on skills. The GREAT Custom Courses allow your organization or project to train larger groups of researchers in a cost-effective manner, helping effective gender-responsive research become the norm, not the exception.
No matter which course you choose, our trainings are centered around intensive, interdisciplinary learning. GREAT courses are designed to make it easier for researchers to incorporate gender into their projects. We demystify gender and provide social and biophysical scientists the theory, knowledge, tools and analytical approaches they need to bring gender into their research programs in a more grounded, realistic manner. Participants walk away better equipped to work together to increase adoption rates, and deliver equitable results that benefit men, women and children, across different crop value chains.
Whether through a GREAT Cohort Course or a GREAT Custom Course, we can help train your institution’s or your project’s researchers to be more effective.
