The training is aimed at municipal workers, with the aim of providing them with theoretical and methodological knowledge for an adequate diagnosis and preparation of local gender equality plans, as well as raising awareness of the role of local entities in this area.
During four sessions, the students will be able to develop practical cases to apply in their place of work.
The contents cover the European context and the national and regional legislation, the management of public policies of equality in local administration, the concept and preparation of equality plans: diagnosis, planning, evaluation and approval, as well as the incorporation of the transversality of gender in public action and the diagnosis of these plans.
Councilor for Equality, Nani Navarro, explained that "we must be aware of the great role that public administrations, but basically municipalities, as they are that first gateway for all neighbors for any problem they have."
For his part, the head of training of the Federation of Municipalities of the Region of Murcia, José Fernández, said that "it is important to have continuous training in town halls, because it makes workers provide a better service."
He also added that "the Murcian Federation develops training plans for more than 20 years, reaching more than 10,000 people through their courses."
"This course deals with the municipal equality plans, a fundamental tool to implement the policy of equality at the municipal level," said Paco Panalés, professor, equality officer and social worker, who thanked the City Council of Alhama and the Federation of Municipalities of the Region of Murcia the initiative.
