In order to reach out to the larger community, CGDS has offered training in various areas including disability, sexual harassment, gender and media, women’s political empowerment, and women’s health. We have also hosted training workshops on campus.


CGDS’ work is for the benefit of the university, but also for the larger community, for the Kurdistan region and Iraq, and for the entire MENA region. We therefore meet and stay in touch with many organizations, both governmental and nongovernmental.
