Leandro Castro Oltramari Marivete Gesser About the authors


The objective of this work was to identify the contributions of the Teacher Training Course in Gender and Diversity in School (GDE) for primary education professionals. Therefore, a focal group with nine participants of the course was carried out, being eight women and one man. Data were analyzed based on content analysis. The results showed that the course contributed to: the acquisition of knowledge about social markers of differences and understanding of these as social and political; the recognition and positioning of participants as feminists; the re-signification of professional and life experiences related to the themes of the DGE. The interviewees highlighted the relevance of themes such as gender, sexuality, race, generation, religion and inadequacy in teacher training.
