On April 3, ISET hosted a knowledge-sharing event by ADB Regional Gender Consultant, Ketevan Chkheidze. The public lecture (which was entitled ‘Gender in Development: Practices, Challenges and Opportunities’) was dedicated to the issue of developing gender equality in the context of Georgia. Specifically, the lecture covered key gender trends in development, where they stand in terms of advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment, as well as practices and approaches in this process and the benefits of considering gender issues in a developing democracy like Georgia.

In addition, drawing on the examples of the ADB’s operation, the practices of integrating gender in development work in different sectors were shared to the audience. Discussing the case of Georgia, the lecture also emphasized the role of different stakeholders, along with the challenges and opportunities in facilitating equal access to and equal participation in development processes.
