Through the GRIT project, Penn State faculty conduct intensive three-week training related to gender research, theory and applied methods. For multiple years, our initiative has hosted multiple cohorts of post-doctoral scholars and researchers at Penn State for this in-depth workshop. Penn State faculty also conducted a condensed version of the GRIT program in-country, with the first occuring in Ethiopia in 2018 following the CGIAR's Collaborative Platform for Gender Research Annual Scientific Meeting.
