First GFP course iteration in 2022 completed

First GFP course iteration in 2022 completed

Date: (28-02-2022)

The first iteration of the NATO-approved Gender Focal Point (GFP) course in 2022 is now completed. The event saw a diverse group of military and civilian experts at the strategic and operational levels actively engage with the role of GFPs in support of the integration of gender perspectives within various areas of responsibility.


Whether identifying and challenging gendered stereotypes producing harmful biases in relation to the rights, opportunities and responsibilities of women, men, girls, and boys, or critically analyzing gender mainstreaming in the security and defence sector, GFPs exercised constructive dialogue in favour of gender equality. They practiced advocating for and supporting the implementation of NATO’s commitments to the Women, Peace and Security agenda and recognized the importance of the Alliance’s gender advisory structure in facilitating collaborative exchange.


The CMDR COE should like to thank the team of subject-matter instructors and facilitators for their valuable contributions to the organisation and delivery of this learning experience.


We also warmly welcome the new cohort of certified GFPs to the wider community of practice and wish them best of success in their future endeavours!



Check out the dates and apply for the upcoming GFP course iterations in 2022.
