How can we create democratic, non-hierarchical interactions with implementing partners and beneficiaries while rigorously gathering the necessary data to determine the impact of our interventions? This panel presents three innovative evaluation methodologies that are participant-focused or participant-generated: assessing data quality for measuring the multiplier effect of investing in women leaders: outcome harvesting to determine the extent of advocacy campaigns, and catalyzing participant documentarians to collect qualitative data; data quality assessments of multiplier effects of women’s leadership; and a participant documentarian approach to case study development. The goal of using each methodology is to generate accurate and reliable information about program interventions while diversifying the means by which this data can be collected and shared. From an evaluation perspective, these methodologies expand the type and content of data to be analyzed. From an intervention perspective, these processes teach useful skills to participants. From a feminist perspective, an inclusive data collection process is creating high-quality, democratic, and non-hierarchical interactions.
