Resource Package and Training Modules for Promoting Gender-Transformative Parenting
Challenging gender norms and gender inequalities to create a more equitable environment for all children to thrive
UNICEF’s new Gender Policy (2021-2030) and Gender Action Plan (GAP 2022-2025) emphasize UNICEF’s commitment to promoting gender equality around the world and recognize the integral role that positive gender socialization plays in transforming harmful gender norms and practices.
With the International Step by Step Association (ISSA), UNICEF developed a resource package and training modules for frontline workers to support parents in implementing gender-transformative parenting practices at home and support positive gender socialization of children and adolescents. The resource package was piloted in eight UNICEF Country Offices in 2022.
