Leadership by Humanitarian Coordinators and Country Teams is critical for addressing the scourge of Gender Based Violence (GBV). Affecting up to 70 percent of women in some of the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, there is an undeniable imperative for action by leaders. An important starting point is recognising that GBV response cannot be dismissed as a purely technical or cultural problem. It must be fully integrated and practically applied across all operations with clear ownership, guidance, and prioritisation by senior leadership.

This two part webinar series on humanitarian leadership, Gender Based Violence and collective response aims to:

  • ·  Provide concrete examples of how senior leaders have sought to address GBV in Nigeria, Pakistan, and West Africa;
  • ·  Outline key steps that humanitarian leaders can take to address GBV, especially HCs and HCTs; and
  • ·  Guide listeners as to where they can go to obtain support.

The webinars will be facilitated by Ingrid Macdonald, Director, P2P Support - IASC. For help logging on to the webinar, see the login guide here.
