IPSTC LAUNCHES ITS REVIEWED GENDER POLICY

Today marked a colossal fete for the Centre, as we launched the reviewed Gender Policy, in what was a colourful launch. It was attended by members of our Joint Control Board, chaired by ACDF OPD&T, Maj Gen F Leuria, the IPSTC fraternity led by the Director Brigadier Joyce Sitienei, and UN Women East and Southern Africa Regional Office Rep, Ms Maureen Shonge.

Owing to changes in the gender, peace and security ecosystem, we needed to evaluate our previous gender policy that was launched in 2015.
Before reassessment, the policy made significant strides in ensuring all our curricula were gender mainstreamed, as well as seeing gender aspects inculcated into our HR manual, among other achievements.

To stay up to date with the latest, evolving regulations and best practices in the Women Peace Security (WPS) and Gender Equality ecosystem, the policy was reviewed externally and contains a comprehensive budgeted action plan, as well as expanded core functions that include the integration of IPSTC Post Graduate School (IPS).
