After the first workshop in Dublin, the GE Academy completed another hands-on training session, this time in Barcelona, Spain. The workshop lasted two days, from 18thto 19th of November, and it was hosted by the Centre for Genomic Regulation. Titled “Dealing with resistances”, the workshop elaborated on identifying, analysing and addressing different types of resistances towards gender equality plans in academic fields.
Dr Lucy Ferguson, specialist in gender training with a profound research experience on gender equality topics, was the coordinator of the event. The workshop was participant-oriented as it sought to strengthen the capacity of attendees to explore their own reactions to resistant behaviours towards gender equality plans and assist them to handle them in abalanced and strategical way, tailored on the institutional context.
