UN Women Guide Published and Launch Event: Inclusive Systemic Evaluation for Gender equality, Environments and Marginalized voices (ISE4GEMs)

Kia ora everyone

I’m forwarding this particular note because of its significance.  It is the culmination of some excellent work over the past three years by members of UN Woman and their colleagues, especially Anne Stephens, Ellen Lewis and Shravanti Reddy.  

Briefly this is the most recent evaluation methodology based on systems.  It is a unique combination of two important systems traditions; feminist systems and critical systems.  What makes it almost unique is that it is essentially a soup to nuts evaluation manual rather than a general description of a particular evaluation approach.  

Declaration of interest : I was a member of the advisory group.


We are very pleased to share with you the link to the final guide introducing Inclusive Systemic Evaluation for Gender Equality, Environments and Marginalized voices (ISE4GEMs): A new approach for the SDG era <http://www.unwomen.org/en/digital-library/publications/2018/9/ise4gems-a-new-approach-for-the-sdg-era>. The development of this guide is the culmination of the efforts, energies and commitments of the three co-authors together with the advice and support of  our Advisory Group members. 

We were able to deliver a 1-day pre-conference training on the approach at the European Evaluation Society conference last week that was well attended. We are also hosting a launch event (in-person and online) on 18th October from 10:00AM – 11:30AM (NY time) and would like to invite you to attend. The official announcement will be shared shortly with the link to connect.  

Best regards, 
Anne, Ellen and Shravanti
