Main Messages and Findings from the IEG Gender Practitioners Workshop

The Gender Practitioners Community of Practice brings together the perspectives of evaluators from International Financial Institutions (IFIs) that are part of the ECG. This network aims to improve the methods and the quality of evaluations by promoting and participating in initiatives to exchange knowledge and stimulate a discussion on the approaches, challenges, and solutions to integrate gender in evaluation. 

The  first event that brought together this community was the two-day workshop organized by the Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) in Washington, DC in September 2017. The material presented in this brochure summarizes the content of five sessions; additional sessions focused on the challenges of evaluating the gender strategy of IFIs, experiences in assessing gender in project-level validation, and challenges of integrating gender in the evaluation of infrastructure projects.
