Training for Gender-Responsive Campaigning and Advocacy

A recent learning event on gender in the Strategic Partnerships (“Gender? Whoops!”), co-organized by Partos and WO=MEN, concluded that systematic attention for gender requires strong organisational commitment, sufficient gender capacity, and a  gender focus in the theory of change and monitoring and evaluation (M&E).

KIT is offering a new training on Gender-Responsive Campaigning and Advocacy to support consortia members to engender their design of new projects. The training is offered in consultation with Partos and WO=MEN, and it comes in light of the anticipated Ministry of Foreign Affairs(MFA) 2019 “Power of Voices” call for new Strategic Partnerships proposals.

Content

This series of workshops is designed for consortia teams to develop a collective understanding of gender-responsive campaigning and advocacy. Participants will learn to work with gender and power analysis,  including how it applies to theories of change and the dimensions of gender-responsive M&E. Practical guidance will also be provided on how to identify gender outcomes (the “what”), and mechanisms to track change (the “how”).

The overall aim is to help teams to better integrate gender concerns in their problem analysis and design of campaigning and advocacy in light of the upcoming MFA call for proposals.

To get the most from the training, KIT strongly advises the attendance of two or more persons from each consortia to better embed learnings and ensure they are translated  into gender-responsive campaigning and advocacy. Ideally these individuals should be the senior consortia member; an appointed gender officer/advisor should also attend.

These workshops serve as the basis for additional KIT support that can be arranged as an add on comprised of mentoring and/or advisory services tailored to the project needs.

Objectives

At the end of the training, the participants should be able to:

  • describe what gender is and do a power analysis
  • integrate gender and power analysis into a Theory of Change, and
  • describe gender-responsive M&E for campaigning and advocacy initiatives

Approach

Use of mix methods including mini-lectures, group activities, case study and homework readings.

Application

  • be involved in campaigning and advocacy
  • have basic knowledge of gender concepts (or have taken a free, basic online course prior to training[1])
