From Rhetoric to Results: Creating Accountability for Gender Standards

Please join the Gender Practitioners Collaborative and InterAction for an interactive panel and discussion about one of the eight Minimum Standards for Mainstreaming Gender Equality published earlier this year by the Gender Practitioners Collaborative: establishing accountability mechanisms within organizations and programs. Hear from leaders in this field from World Vision, Catholic Relief Services, CARE, Interaction, Mercy Corps, International Refugee Commission, and others about what it takes to ensure accountability for gender mainstreaming, with a focus on gender audits and project-level gender scorecards. The panel and discussion will focus on promising and innovative approaches, lessons learned, and what’s on the horizon in the field.
