InterAction’s Commission on the Advancement of Women invites you to a workshop on what “gender mainstreaming” is all about and how it advances women’s empowerment and gender equality. This one-day workshop in San Francisco on June 17 will introduce the CAW’s innovative Gender Audit Organizational Self-Assessment and Action Planning Process.

InterAction’s new study, Revealing the Power of Gender Mainstreaming — Enhancing Development Effectiveness of Non-Governmental Organizations in Africa, shows dramatic changes for women’s status and bottom-line development efforts in 16 rural communities in 4 countries after organizations implemented gender mainstreaming. The voices of nearly 900 village women and men in this study track a true transformation in the link between gender equality and poverty alleviation.

How did these NGOs attain these results?

Their first step was the Gender Audit, InterAction’s state-of-the-art organizational self-assessment and action planning process, which this one-day workshop will introduce.

At the workshop, you will:
Learn and practice the steps for the implementing the Gender Audit.
Discuss ways to use the Gender Audit and the Gender Audit CD-Rom Facilitator’s Guide for your organization.
Explore examples from organizations that have used the tool.
Receive copies of the Gender Audit CD-ROM Facilitator’s Guide and the Revealing the Power of Gender Mainstreaming study.
