Unpacking Masculinities Workshop for water sector stakeholders

As part of the Digo Jal Bikas project, the IWMI Nepal office organized the one-day workshop “Unpacking Masculinity” on 11TH May, 2018 in Kathmandu. The goal of the workshop was to initiate critical reflection among water stakeholders on gender issues within organisations. Water engineers, gender experts, and water sector development actors from government and non-government sectors in Nepal were invited to join the event. It was the first dialogue on masculinity in Nepal which through a series of interactive sessions paves the way for further discussion on how a masculine organisational culture impacts attitudes and practices within the water sector and how this in turn impacts the goal of gender equity and social justice. The workshop was organized by Work Package 5 on Gender under DJB project.  The workshop was facilitated by Dr. Deepa Joshi from Coventry University in the United Kingdom.
