The Transformative Leadership for Gender Equality (TLGE) Training Center was launched in 2019 under a tripartite partnership between Amhara Bureau of Women, Children and Youth Affair (Amhara BoWCYA), UN Women and Bahir Dar University (BDU). The TLGE was set up with a view to create a sustainable access for capacity building and empowerment platform for aspiring and existing women leaders in Amhara Region and beyond. In addition to women leaders, the program seeks to build the transformative leadership capacity of male leaders to enable them to transform the gender relations within the institutions they lead and fast track the achievement of a just society. Apart from serving as a capacity building hub, the program seeks to generate of knowledge on gender equality and women empowerment particularly focusing on women’s representation and participation in public and political life. Identifying challenges women face towards holding leadership positions and finding innovative solutions to ensure evidence-based interventions is also among the goals of the program.
The initiative of setting up the TLGE Training center is in alignment with international, national and regional normative frameworks such as the SDGs, the 10-year development plan of Ethiopia and gender machineries sector plan both at federal and regional level to ensure the equal participation and effective representation of women in leadership and decision-making positions in Ethiopia.
Currently, a series of knowledge products including training curriculum, facilitators guide and learner’s handbook which is required to kick start a comprehensive capacity building program for women leaders have been developed and piloted. The knowledge products are intended for use by lead trainers for the training center and other partners that are working to empower women in leadership and increase their representation and participation in decision making positions. With a view to ensure the availability of a pool of trainers that can deliver training for women leaders, UN Women in collaboration with Amhara BoWCYA and Bahir Dar University organized a first round TOT focusing on adult learning techniques in December 2019. Currently the UN Women is organizing a second round TOT combining adult learning skills together with the content of the TLGE Training curriculum that is being used for TLGE trainings.
This TOR is therefore prepared to guide the selection of trainees for the second round technical TOT for a TLGE Training Center.

Accordingly, the second round TOT has the objective of capacitating participants in the following areas:
Trainers and Trainees
