This report of the eighth Virtual Dialogue hosted by the UN Women Training Centre’s Community of Practice (CoP) summarizes discussions on two key issues which require more conceptual clarity: a theory of how change occurs through training for gender equality, and how feminist pedagogical principles can be applied to training to evoke such change through transformative training. Participants also discussed the ways in which Theories of Change and feminist pedagogies can inform and nurture one another, working in a cyclical, non-linear manner and applying a reflexive approach. The Virtual Dialogue also explored challenges and strategies for developing Theories of Change and applying feminist pedagogies in training for gender equality.
