Sonke, MenEngage Africa, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and Wits Institute for Diversity Studies (WICDS) are calling for applications to attend our Religion, Gender and Sexuality Workshop to be held from 1-5 June, 2015 in Johannesburg.
This workshop aims to bring together members of faith communities from diverse religions to explore questions such as: How can diverse religions be part of gender transformation? What role can faith leaders play in the protection of women’s and sexual minority rights? Is the use of religious texts to suppress a number of human rights truly in line with religious doctrine?
We hereby invite applications from individuals from across Africa working in any faith community to submit applications to be part of this ground-breaking workshop, which will be fully-funded.
If you would like to participate, please see the attached document for all requirements. Applications should be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Friday April 10, 2015.
