Upgrading my Gender Toolkit thanks to ISE4GEMVs

by Feb 17, 2019

I started learning about gender perspective and gender focused programmes thanks to evaluation assignments. I am not sure I have become a Gender Specialist but I have definitely learned tons ever since. Deeply interested in the theory behind it, I studied the UNEG’s “Human-Right Gender-Responsive Handbook”. and I visualize it as a double-sided checklist, one on the left to see if the programme complies with it, and the right one to assess if the evaluation was gender-responsive.

However, I struggled to put the framework into practice, or to find other data collection methods or analytical tools to help me make my evaluations more gender-responsive, or rather, less gender-blind. So I was pretty excited when UN Women published the ISE4GEMs manual, where I have discovered some new-to-me frameworks that make me feel more technically equipped.

Here is a sneak peak of the infographic I did summarizing them (done in powerpoint, slide size 125x15cm, image quality when exporting is not great) and full quality pdf version here:

The only tool I actually use was the first one, that I customize by mapping the before and after situation of men and women after the crisis or after the programme. But I hope to be able to incorporate new elements included in other frameworks, either to include deeper questions in the design or the discussions, or to analyze the data collected…

To be continued. Thanks for reading.
