Gender Learning Series: Session 1
October 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Putting Feminist and Gender-sensitive MEAL into practice
Spur Change is inviting Canadian SMOs to a practical, hands-on and peer-to-peer learning opportunity to strengthen their capacity to integrate a gender/feminist approach into their activities.
This is the first session in the series and will be presented in collaboration with Oxfam Canada, Plan Canada and MEDA.
How to apply feminist principles to monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning (MEAL) practice? How does the empowerment of women translate to project monitoring? Using feminist approaches to MEAL could increase access to knowledge and consequently it could be a powerful tool to transform unequal power relations. Organizations can achieve it by developing tools that incorporate feminist principles into their project management and monitoring.
During this webinar, Oxfam-Canada, Plan Canada and MEDA will share concrete tools and resources to help SMOs aiming to adopt a gender-sensitive and feminist lens to their MEAL including:
- Oxfam Canada’s Guidance Note on Feminist MEAL
- The Women and Girls Empowerment Index (WGEI) developed by Plan Canada
- The Gender Action Learning System (GALS) methodology showcased by MEDA
Presentations will be followed by interactive small group discussions in which participants will be invited to get familiar with tools and approaches presented. Participants will also be invited to share their own struggles and strategies while applying feminist and gender-sensitive practices into MEAL.
Simultaneous interpretation will be available. The webinar will be recorded.
This will be a very interesting session. I hope you can join us!
