At the Purple Certificate Online Basic Training which took place between 17-20 November 2020, 60 teachers and prospective teachers selected from 708 applications came together. The training given by Nevgül Bilsel Safkan, the Vice Chairperson of the Haci Ömer Sabancı Foundation and a member of the SU Gender Advisory Board, raised awareness regarding gender equality in many different fields from literature to science and from law to health. At the end of four days of training, teachers and prospective teachers received a certificate of participation.
As part of the Online Basic Training, Sabancı Holding aimed to eliminate inequalities in the online and distance education process with a notebook computer delivered to all participants, and also granted participating teachers and prospective teachers with the right to give out these computers to their colleagues or students.
The next Online Training within the scope of the Purple Certificate Program will be held in February 2021.
