Gender Sensitization Tools in Monitoring and Evaluation

Dear All,

I was facilitating a daylong gender sensitization session with my project staffs working in dairy value chain in Bangladesh. I am sharing a PowerPoint (Gender Sensitization.pptx) of that session.

Actually the session was based on the tools used and lesson learned through a gender/equity sensitive monitoring and evaluation system implementation. Though the session was focused on the tools used and the knowledge generated in gender in value chain rather depth in Gender Monitoring and Evaluation in depth.

It will be my great pleasure to hear your feelings on it and hoping to know on your ideas, experiences in gender sensitization and women empowerment through development programming.


Best regards

Thanks everyone for constructive and instructive comments. Really I am mentored in so many issue that will enrich me as well as my M&E for measuring gender impact.

I agreed with Ranjani and Pankaj Shrivastav and will adjust it for the next. Also appreciate Susan for the in depth guideline. It will also help me to re-articulate my thinking also.

Thanks again

Dear Apurba,

Thanks for sharing this superb presentation. I agree completely with Ranjani on the issue of ownership and gender relations. Quite often the aspect of 'within gender' relations is omitted yet very important especially if aiming for objectivity. I also appreciate that your presentation was focusing on tools however, these tools are used to only generate and analyze information which is just the starting point. It is equally important to show how the information generated and analyzed can be transformed into relevant gender responsive M and E indicators. Only then can these tools be useful to your audience. Quite often (based on personal experience) projects get stuck after that level- not knowing what to do next or how to do it. As a result, some undertake activities that are arbitrary and end up misrepresenting the gender movement.

All in all, the power point is superb and very informative!

Dear Apurba 

Thanks for sharing your great visual ppt. that you use for gender sensitization. I hope many people use it. 

Two comments-

You may like to add between the concept of 'access' and 'control', the issue of 'ownership' of resources.  Ownership is not normally put under access. 

Power relations- could include within gender relations within household as well as  what is played out in Salish, upazilla committee, in market places and with government officials
