Sir Marston Gibson and new CCJ Judge to open gender training for judicial officers

 The Honourable Sir Marston Gibson, K.A., Chief Justice of Barbados will deliver the feature address at the opening ceremony of the Gender Sensitive Adjudication Training for Judicial Officers.

The opening ceremony takes place on Friday, July 26, 2019 at 8:45 am at the Radisson Aquatica Resort, Aquatic Gap, Bridgetown, Barbados. Other speakers at the ceremony will include The Honourable Mr. Justice Peter Jamadar, Judge, Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ); Her Excellency Marie Legault, High Commissioner of Canada to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean; the Honourable Mme. Justice Jacqueline Cornelius, Judge, Barbados Supreme Court and Mrs. Gloria Richards-Johnson, JURIST Project Director. 

One of the JURIST Project’s immediate outcome is intended to improve the capacity of courts to deliver gender responsive services to court users. The Project has sought to do this in three ways: development of Gender Equality Protocols, Gender Sensitisation Training and development and implementation of a Gender Equality Accountability Tool. All three components are being done in partnership with the Caribbean Association of Judicial Officers (CAJO), UNWomen and the Judicial Education Institutes of the different jurisdictions.

The two-day training (July 26-27, 2019) is intended to build the capacity of judicial officers to be more gender sensitive in their adjudication of family law matters and cases involving gender-based violence.
