Gender training

Activities with ECTS credit recognition

The UAB Observatory for the Equality offers several activities with gender perspective which provide recognition of academic credits.

The activities we present address gender perspective (course 2023-2024) from different professional, academic and participation areas, such as non-sexist communication, gender perspective in university environments, masculinities or the collaboration with the brigades of the Purple Point (stand to prevent gender based violence and sexual harassment).

General Information:

Purple Point at La Comunitària UAB:

The goal is to work as itinerant couples or brigades of the Purple Point in the UAB's La Comunitària. These brigades will inform about the protocols and resources of the UAB to address situations of gender violence and will take care of assaulted persons in possible assault cases. The brigades' functions are: 1) to go through the different virtual spaces in the UAB's La Comunitària; 2) to go with the person who has been assaulted to the virtual Purple Point, offering them support; 3) to inform about the Purple Point and other resources about sexual violence at the UAB.

During april 2024, there will be training sessions before La Comunitària, and on the 12th of April, on the day of UAB's La Comunitària, those who are part of the brigades will act as itinerant couples of the Purple Point.

The main objective of the workshop is the involvement of boys in gender equality and against sexist violence. We consider it essential to work with boys around their masculinity, problematizing its negative consequences in relationships, in gender inequality and, therefore, in relation to sexist violence. It is intended to offer a space for reflection and dialogue that can transcend the course itself, reaching the point of questioning the rest of the boys and men of the university.

The course program addresses: What are masculinities? What are the consequences and costs of the different masculinities? How can men and boys change and what difficulties and resistance do we encounter? How can they get involved and involve other boys and men in achieving equality and non-violence? Development of proposals and ideas aimed at boys and men of the university community.

Communicating with a gender perspective requires understanding how the speech we produce perpetuates the patriarchal and androcentric ideology of society which places women and all those people not defined from the man subject in otherness and isolation. For this reason, it is necessary to identify where and how inequality and gender-based discrimination in linguistic and audiovisual speech are expresses, implicitly and explicitly. We will learn in a practical way how to apply the different recommendations for non-sexist communication and the use of an inclusive language to gain precision and exactness in our messages.
