  • to improve professionals’ competences in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment
  • to challenge gender-based stereotypes related to women’s participation in the public and private spheres of their lives
  • to boost women’s willingness and capacity to boost women’s willingness, capacity and sense of agency within their diverse living contexts
