The United Nations International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (INSTRAW) has launched a new interactive website, the purpose of which is to increase communication on gender training. The Gender Training Wiki contains an interactive map that displays participating institutions and their upcoming gender trainings, a calendar of trainings, training materials, information on online gender training courses, a list of institutions that provide trainings, as well as additional guides and information related to gender training.

The website is one of many wikis that have been created recently. The uniqueness of this site is that it allows anyone to edit and update it. INSTRAW sees this as an essential way to keep people up-to-date on gender trainings throughout the world. Websites are often difficult to keep updated, but this wiki will allow anyone involved to update information relevant to them. With the growing amount of information regarding gender training, this wiki seeks to alleviate the difficulty organizations face in keeping a website current with the latest information and publications.
