After some months of reflection we have a first version of the Gender Dashboard.

It has to be reviewed, tested and discussed, but here is a start.  We think it is helpful because it unveils what gender-focus means in an evaluation, in just one page.

It is divided in three parts:

  • the central parts covers the basic elements of Gender-responsive evaluation, according to UNEG’s “Human-Right Gender-Responsive Handbook”.
  • the right column assesses all these elements in the evaluation. In the form of a checklist it details all the features or elements that gender-responsive approaches imply.
  • but at the same time, and independently, the left column assesses if the intervention itself was gender-responsive, according to the same criteria.

We think that it is helpful to separate these two aspects when we are evaluating or metaevaluating an evaluation led by the Gender-responsive approach.

This way, there is less confusion regarding what we are talking about when we are discussing this approach in a particular case.

We are expecting to further iterate with it to improve it, so reactions and comments are always welcome!
