EvalPartners Equity Focused and Gender Responsive (EFGR) Task Force
Professor Donna M. Mertens, Gallaudet University
We are delighted to announce a WEBINAR on Enabling Gender Responsive and Equity Focused evaluation (EFGR), as part of the EvalPartners initiative. This is the second WEBINAR organised by the Task Force with particular responsibility for promoting EFGR evaluation.
The WEBINAR theme
Donna Mertens will address enabling factors that are relevant to sustaining and encouraging a gender responsive/equity focused orientation for evaluative practice, with specific attention given to the issues of stakeholders’ involvement. Evaluators can play a role in advocating for gender responsive and equity focused evaluation by persuasively engaging with a full range of stakeholders, from those who represent marginalized groups to those who represent national evaluation systems and donors. A framework for addressing the cultural and linguistic complexities will be used to illustrate successful strategies and encourage participant’s application of these practices.
The presentation will be followed by a discussion where online participants will have the opportunity to raise questions and make their interventions via online chat facility.
