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 2021-2022) from different professional, academic and participation areas, such as non-sexist communication, gender perspective in university environments or the collaboration with the brigades of the Purple Point (stand to prevent gender based violence and sexual harassment).

The goal is to work as itinerant couples (brigades) of the Purple Point in the UAB's Festa Major, informing about the protocols and resources of the UAB to address situations of gender violence, and taking care of attacked persons in possible cases of attacks. The functions of the brigade are: 1) go through the different virtual spaces in the UAB's Festa Major; 2) accompany the people who have suffered an attack to the Virtual Purple Point; 3) inform about the Purple Point and other resources about sexual violence at the UAB.

There will be three training sessions before the Festa Major, during October 2021, and on the day of the UAB's Festa Major, 4th November, the people who are part of the brigades will act as itinerant couples of the Purple Point.

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.
