I have been asked to find an example of "good" Theory of Change that describes how a bilateral aid agency's gender policy is expected to work and have its effects
Good in this context means it is a good description of the agency's gender policy and is reasonably evaluable
If you can suggest any examples that are worth looking at I would be very grateful

Such an important question and I too would benefit from responses and resources to this question. Many thanks for raising it Rick.
Great question, and I am also looking forward to these examples!
I am not sure these are 'good', but here are two examples:
WOCAN: https://www.wocan.org/our-theory-of-change/ (like the simplicity)
WEMAN: https://www.oxfamnovib.nl/Redactie/Pdf/Theory%20of%20Change%20WEMAN... (very, very extensive. Wondering if anyone ever reads this...)
(is it a theory of change? not really. but, whatever works)
Thanks for the responses so far.
Partly related to this question, I recently wrote a blog about what I thought was a good example of a ToC, but not relating to gender policy. You can see my argument and example here: https://mandenews.blogspot.com/2021/08/reconciling-need-for-both-ho...
I will check this out and share with others:-)
Thank you! I started following your blog and also feature it in today's newsletter;
Deborah McSmith, MPH- Gavi has a good gender policy theory of change
Dear Rituu, how are you? Can I kindly ask you to share the gender policy ToC?
Hi Rituu, I tried googling for the Gavi ToC but couldn't find it. Can you please send it if you have it?
