About the event:

Gender transformative programs work to change the underlying factors that give rise to gender-based discrimination and inequality. By confronting deeply entrenched gender norms and inequitable structures, gender transformative programs seek to make lasting contributions toward promoting gender equity. Capturing these achievements requires considering processes of change that are complex and often not tangible i.e. changes in levels of self-efficacy, confidence, larger social relations, interpersonal relationships, rules, norms, attitudes, beliefs, practices, and so on.

What does it take to fully capture a gender transformative program’s real and potential contribution to the wider change processes involved in achieving gender equality? How can this process be culturally relevant and collaborative?

At gLOCAL 2023, the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), will be speaking to gender experts to explore the answers to some of these queries, in a panel discussion.
