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.

2019 State of the Art in Engaging Men in Health & Development: A Technical Marketplace

The importance of engaging men in gender equality, health and development efforts has never been more evident.  Yet the question of how to meaningfully engage men as consumers of health services, supportive partners and agents of change while balancing many other key principles of our work remains a challenge for our community.  As male engagement work grows in depth, breadth, and visibility, new issues emerge.

On September 24, the Interagency Gender Working Group’s Male Engagement Taskforce (METF) co-chairs (Jhpiego, Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown, and the Population Council) hosted a half-day meeting, State of the Art in Engaging Men: A Technical Marketplace at the Maternal Child Survival Program offices in Washington, DC. Over 50 participants from the community of practice came together to learn about new interventions, research, and tools relevant to engaging men in health and to network with colleagues working on engaging men in the gender, health & development communities.
