OVERVIEW

The promotion of gender equality at key government agencies is an integral part of USAID’s work towards a prosperous and secure Vietnam that is effective and inclusive in tackling its own development challenges. In this context, the Program annually organizes a training on Gender and Social Inclusion to build capacity of gender and gender equality in trade facilitation for USAID Trade Facilitation Program personnel and key counterparts at the General Department of Vietnam Customs (GDVC). Annual trainings are critical due to staff turnover and new counterparts, and they also provide a “refresher” on key gender issues relevant to the Program. The trainings also underscore to all staff the importance that the Program senior leadership places on gender integration.

The Program will engage a qualified trainer/specialist in gender, social inclusion, and gender equality issues in trade facilitation in Vietnam. The trainer/specialist will deliver a one-day training in the first week of May 2021 on Gender and Social Inclusion to approximately 35 learners, including 22 Program staff and 18 from counterparts at GDVC. The objective of the training is to improve participants’ understanding of gender-related issues in the workplace. The training should incorporate interactive and/or small group activities. The training should include but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Key Concepts of Gender and Social Inclusion
    • Gender vs. sex
    • Gender equity vs. equality
    • Social inclusion and considerations for marginalized groups including people with disabilities
    • Intersectionality
    • Gender integration
    • Ensuring diversity and inclusion
  • Gender Roles and Constraints to Economic Participation
  • Gender Matters in Trade and Development: A Focus on the Vietnam Context
  • Creating Respectful and Inclusive Environments
