GREAT is a Cornell University and Makerere University joint certificate program in applied gender training for agricultural researchers that offers tailored skills development in gender-responsiveness for the design, implementation, evaluation, and communication stages of agricultural research projects.


GREAT courses are tailored to specific agriculture disciplines and value chains, offering gender training linked to practice in agricultural research, targeted to research communities. The courses are designed to balance the depth of theory needed to internalize concepts with practical tools to apply in ongoing projects. GREAT aims to equip research teams with tools and skills to act, and move beyond “gender sensitization”.


The course will take place in Kampala, Uganda. Venue details will be circulated to accepted participants.
