The training toolkit was developed to complement and put into practice the MenEngage Accountability Standards and Guidelines. Through critical dialogue around what it means to be accountable to women’s rights and other important stakeholders, organizations will be able to define the ways in which a culture of accountability can be promoted within their own organization.
Above all, these efforts are underpinned by the MenEngage Alliance’s commitment to act in accordance with the MenEngage Core Principles and Code of Conduct, and ensure that members act in a manner that upholds our collective work and the integrity of the Alliance.
The training toolkit contains four practical sessions and supporting tools (such as case studies) modeled from existing gender-transformative methodologies. In addition to provoking dialogue on issues of accountability, these sessions aim to aid organizations in developing concrete strategies for prevention and response in cases of breaches of good conduct. The toolkit also provides key definitions, a tool to develop a timeline for implementation, and another tool to conduct a self-evaluation.
