  • Rather than focusing on women we focus on challenging socially constructed gender relations which disempower women (and men!)
  • Transcript

    • 1. Approach to gender mainstreaming
    • 2. SCIAF: Gender Mainstreaming
      • SCIAF’s thinking on gender and mainstreaming
      • SCIAF’s approach to gender
      • Challenges and ongoing work to take this forward
      • Case Study
    • 3. SCIAF’s thinking on gender
      • High priority for SCIAF
      • One of six cross-cutting issues in new SCIAF Approaches to International Development
      • All programmes and projects are reviewed against criteria for each cross-cutting issue
    • 4. SCIAF’s approach to gender
      • Gender equality is essential to poverty elimination and the achievement of the MDGs
      • Gender equality does not mean equal numbers of men and women, boys and girls in all activities
      • Gender equality signifies a society in which women, men, girls and boys can live equally fulfilling lives and be treated according to the same principles
    • 5. Gender mainstreaming criteria
      • Has a gender analysis been conducted, including social structures and root causes of gender inequality? Were both men and women involved in project design?
      • Does the project address gender, including roles, control of resources, issues prioritised and ways in which new initiatives may affect males and females?
    • 6. Gender mainstreaming criteria II
      • Will all planned communications promote gender equality, showing women in positions of power and users of services as appropriate?
      • Will sex-disaggregated data be collected as part of monitoring and evaluation?
      • Does the project include appropriate capacity-building for the partner to address gender effectively across operations, policy, culture and staffing?
    • 7. Challenges and ongoing work
      • Many partners still focus on “women’s projects” which only address women’s practical needs
      • Need to also address more strategic needs such as unequal social relations
      • Mainstreaming gender across organisation and not just in international programmes
    • 8. Part 2: The Self- Assessment Tool
      • 5 mins – introductions
      • 15 mins - SCIAF’s self assessment
      • 10 mins clarification / Q&A
      • 15 mins participants trying out one of the self assessment questions as it applies to their organisation
      • 15 mins feedback / tie up – what are the key issues?
    • 9. CC 1.1 How do we ensure that women and men are participating in our decision-making?
    • 10. CC 1.2 How do we ensure that women and men can safely access our services and resources?
    • 11. CC 1.3 How do we involve both men and women in bringing about sustained and positive change?
    • 12. CC 1.4 How do we make sure women and men contribute to organisational learning?
    • 13. CC 1.5 What steps do we take to actively ensure that there is a fair representation of suitable women and men on our Board and among our staff and volunteers?
    • 14. CC 1.6 How do we ensure that there is fair representation of suitable women and men in and across our partnership(s)?
