Gender Learning Series

About the Workshop

This fall, Spur Change is hosting a series of practical, hands-on and peer-to-peer learning opportunities to strengthen the the capacity of Canadian SMOs to integrate a gender/feminist approach into their activities. Sector champions will share Gender-adapted tools and practices,  and explore with participants how they could be adapted to the needs and realities of SMOs. These 90-120min interactive sessions will be held monthly starting in October. 

The videos and presentation material from the first two sessions are now available in our Resource Library.

Session 1: Putting Feminist MEAL into Practice

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.


Session 2 : Testing Innovative Solutions with a Gender Lens

Presented in collaboration with FIT (The Fund for Innovation and Transformation)

Integrating gender equality throughout an initiative, from design to evaluation, is essential to fostering sustainable gender equality results. Many organizations, however, lack the resources, time or capacity to effectively mainstream gender in their development work, especially in a dynamic testing environment.
