EnCompass works with USAID’s Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GenDev) to update, deliver, and evaluate a blended learning program comprised of four courses for USAID/Washington and Mission staff worldwide:
- Achieving Development Objectives through Gender Integration (ADS 205 Course) that builds capacity of USAID staff to operationalize the Automated Directive Systems (ADS) Chapter 205: Integrating Gender Equality and Female Empowerment in USAID’s Program Cycle.
- Integrating Gender-based Violence Prevention and Response (GBV Course) that invites USAID staff to reflect on how to prevent and respond to GBV through both a personal and programmatic lens by exploring GBV prevention and response in one or more of the following programmatic sectors: education; rule of law; energy and infrastructure; crisis and conflict management; global health; economic growth; and agriculture and food security.
- ADS 205 and GBV Hybrid Course (Hybrid Course) that was developed for missions that have expressed interest in both courses, but lack the time or funding to take advantage of the two independent courses.
- Gender Integration Training of Trainers Course (TOT Course) that responds to an increasing demand for the three courses listed above by building the capacity of USAID staff to (co-) facilitate the trainings. Its primary focus is on having participants deliver the sessions, receive feedback, and engage in self-assessment.
This work is conducted under the ADVANTAGE IDIQ.
