Gender Equality in Transportation (Self-Paced)

Gender Equality in Transportation (Self-Paced)

The course was jointly prepared by the World Bank’s Transport Global Practice and Open Learning Campus, and the UN Women´s Training Centre and the Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces Global Initiative. It provides an understanding of the often-invisible gender aspects surrounding mobility in the transport sector that make the sector “gender-blind,” and therefore unable to consider the mobility needs of its diverse range of users and specifically, women and girls. It also looks at difficulties women face in getting jobs and climbing the career ladder in the transport sector—a sector dominated by a male workforce. Importantly, the course shares concrete solutions designed to support the shift towards greater gender equality in the sector. The course includes recaps throughout that repeat briefly what has been studied to facilitate knowledge retention. It finishes with a short quiz to test the participants’ knowledge.
