Gaming for Gender Equality

We reworked the age old games of #GuessWho, #SnakesAndLadders, and #Taboo to train people who engage with the game in peace, gender equality, and to understand efforts made in the development sector to address issues centered on gender and sustainable peace. This afternoon, a bunch of bright young minds played Taboo and Snakes and Ladders and recognized the power of making inclusive steps that engage with underlying issues and causes, and also learned an important learning in this space: (and I borrow Rosa Diaz/Stephanie Beatrice's words here) "Two steps front and one step back is still one step front."
