EnCompass designed and delivered a workshop on gender awareness for 30 staff members of a United Nations agency. The workshop focused on increasing awareness of the individual mental models and cultural norms that affect beliefs and attitudes regarding gender. Workshop participants explored how workplace culture is affected by bringing together myriad beliefs and experiences into one agency. The participants discussed strategies and opportunities for developing a more gender-competent workplace. To design the workshop, EnCompass reviewed literature, conducted assessments, developed a macro design, and then developed a trainer script.
