Experience of being a member of Gender and Evaluation Community

Dear All,

I am Monika Banerjee working as a Research Fellow at the Institute of Social Studies Trust (ISST), New Delhi. I am currently trying to compile the Annual Report of ISST for the year 2020-21.

As you know that this online platform on Gender and Evaluation is being hosted by ISST since 2013 and we at ISST are extremely happy to see the way your participation is constantly strengthening this platform year after year.

This year for the annual report, we thought of including some reflections on the experiences of being part of this large family. It will also give us an understanding of areas where gains are visible and those where more work is required. Therefore, I request you to kindly help us in posting some of your reflections in terms of your experiences of being a member of this gender and eval online community.

We would like to know what has been your experience till date of being a member of this online community and in what way has it helped your work and career.

Hoping to hear from you all soon.

warm regards,

Hi Monika:

I have been a member in this community since several years and it is one of the most active communities I have, Almost on a weekly basis there is a new share either of an information of a publication, a webinar or a work opportunity, thanks mainly to our dear Rituu.

Hi Monika,

Thank you for conducting the survey. Gender Eval Online platform provides the global digital based linking and learning platform which is excellent for global efforts in moving towards more equitable world. Gender Eval has been continuously sharing information, knowledge, analytical products and lessons learned on gender based evaluation methodology, systems, approaches, practices as well as available opportunities. It has helped me to better understand gender informed monitoring evaluation and learning (MEL). I truly learned, inspired and undoubtedly thankful on the persistent efforts from Rituu in maintaining and navigating Gender Eval. I enjoyed reading the postings of gendereval online platform. I feel proud and empowered of being part of this online platform. Looking forward to hearing your survey result.
