The IGWG organizes regular in-person and virtual events where members from around the world can learn from and connect with each other. These events may be thematic, such as a focus on recent research in the GBV field, or dedicated to capacity strengthening, such as integrating participatory and inclusive evaluation and learning methods in gender transformative global health programming. Our annual IGWG Plenary creates space for members to meet in person and provide feedback on the network as a whole each year.

Presentations and recordings of IGWG events are available online so you can find past events you missed or want to revisit. The presentation materials are also available.

2018 IGWG Plenary

View event overview, presentations, and notes from the event here.

The Interagency Gender Working Group (IGWG) plenary meeting was held on July 10, 2018, and included over 60 participants. IGWG members and prospective members came together to learn about new interventions, research and tools relevant to gender, to connect with colleagues in the gender community and to discuss ideas and key priorities for the network.

Presentations spoke to the various ways gender considerations can be integrated within a range of health and technical areas, such as reproductive and maternal health, GBV, and HIV, and in institutional settings to ensure inclusive development.

The last segment of the Plenary involved small group discussion where participants further explored existing programming around (1) gender integration, (2) addressing social norms, (3) responding to the particular needs of youth and (4) male engagement.
