We held the closing event of the ‘Capacity Building and Technical Assistance Program on Gender Equality‘, one of the most important components of the ‘Strong Civic Space for Gender Equality‘ Project, funded by the European Union and implemented by UN Women Turkey, for evidence-based advocacy in Ankara. Within the scope of this project, which we carried out in partnership with the Association for Monitoring Gender Equality (CEİD) and Dissensus Research, a wide range of events from training to mentoring support, hackathons to digital story workshops were organized.

Each activity aimed to increase the knowledge and skills of the participants and to make concrete contributions to the struggle for gender equality.
