About the client & project:
A large multilateral institution wanted to understand the extent to which its gender action plan was working and how aspects of the existing plan could be improved and strengthened. ICRW was contracted to conduct a diagnostic.
We reviewed internal policies and programs, as well as conducted interviews, surveys and robust data analysis using the institutionʼs existing metrics on gender.
Our assessment allowed the client to better understand which of its investments in gender mainstreaming paid off, as well as where and how to improve its metrics tracking how gender was integrated in existing lending and operations and to what effect. Our team highlighted that although the human resource department had made significant strides to address gender inequality in hiring, promotion and retention, a culture of gender mainstreaming needed to be adopted throughout the institution, flowing down from the leadership and materializing in targets and mechanisms to promote greater accountability.
