Dashboard for the Gender-responsive approach
This post was elaborated for ImpactReady's project "Evalyear.com"ImpactReady (Joseph) and Sara partnered to celebrate 2015 "Year of Evaluation" with Data Visualizations.
After some months of reflection we have a first version of the Gender Dashboard.
It has to be reviewed, tested and discussed, but here is a start. We think it is helpful because it unveils what gender-focus means in an evaluation, in just one page.
It is divided in three parts:
- the central parts covers the basic elements of Gender-responsive evaluation, according to UNEG’s “Human-Right Gender-Responsive Handbook”.
- the right column assesses all these elements in the evaluation. In the form of a checklist it details all the features or elements that gender-responsive approaches imply.
- but at the same time, and independently, the left column assesses if the intervention itself was gender-responsive, according to the same criteria.
We think that it is helpful to separate these two aspects when we are evaluating or metaevaluating an evaluation led by the Gender-responsive approach.
This way, there is less confusion regarding what we are talking about when we are discussing this approach in a particular case.
We are expecting to further iterate with it to improve it, so reactions and comments are always welcome!
