upgrading the skills of professionals for gender-sensitive career guidance!

Guide focuses on increasing the awareness of gender bias and barriers in career counselling.

what we aim for!

GUIDE focuses on the issue of gender and career development and the continuing barriers to achieving equality of opportunity in this area. For this purpose, Career Guidance Professionals (CGP) must adopt a gender-sensitive approach and avoid using stereotypes when supporting individuals in their career decisions.

We aim to help career counsellors move away from biases based on traditional roles that can limit choices to ensure that equal opportunities are offered to all genders without tapping human talent and resources. Let’s ensure all genders are enabled to choose among opportunities based on interest and ability rather than gender.
