This report of the fourth Virtual Dialogue hosted by the UN Women Training Centre’s Community of Practice (CoP) summarizes the main lessons learned in training for gender equality since the Beijing Conference and Platform for Action (PFA) in 1995. Since the PFA envisaged training as a dynamic tool for change, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of evaluation to measure training’s impacts, and significant changes in training delivery. However, training is often used as a quick-fix solution divorced from its transformative potential envisaged in the PFA – pointing to the need to develop an agenda for moving forward.
