This free bilingual webinar will present a practical guide on Mainstreaming Gender Equality into the Program Cycle developed by AQOCI’s “Gender in Practice” community of practice. This “turnkey” guide - which is available in French, English and Spanish - is designed to aid program managers operating within these structures throughout both the Global North and the Global South.
The webinar proposes an overview of the program management cycle:
- Identification of the program
- Formulation of the program and results-based management tools: the logic model and gender-sensitive indicators, the performance measurement framework and risk assessment.
- Implementation of the program
- Program monitoring and evaluation
- Lessons learned
- Laurence Caron, Director of International Projects at the Fondation Paul Gérin-Lajoie
- Linda Gagnon, Program Director at SUCO
- Facilitated by Anne Delorme, Coordinator for the Quebec Women and Development Committee (CQFD) at AQOCI and the “Genre en pratique" (Gender in Practice) community of practice.
The importance of gender equality in combating poverty and advocating for social justice has been recognized for decades. Still, integrating gender equality into international cooperation programs is often done in an ad hoc manner in response to donor demands.
As it stands, one of the challenges facing non-governmental organizations is mainstreaming gender equality in results-based management (RBM) frameworks. Furthermore, the majority of international civil society organizations and NGOs do not possess the standardized tools necessary for ensuring the systematic integration of gender equality into their programs.
The #ICNEngage Webinar Series provides timely, bilingual, on-line learning opportunities for international cooperation and community development organizations across Canada. Organized by the Inter-Council Network, a coalition of eight provincial and regional councils for international cooperation, of which SCIC is an active member.
