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.

IGWG’s Gender-Based Violence Task Force Presents

Continuing the Dialogue from SVRI: New Developments and Future Directions in GBV Work

View presentations and the event recording here.

The recent Sexual Violence Research Initiative Forum (SVRI) in Brazil brought together over 450 researchers, activists, service providers, funders, survivors, and other stakeholders from around the world. Conference participants heard a wealth of new evidence, innovations, and initiatives on preventing and responding to gender-based violence (GBV).

The GBV Task Force has invited panelists involved in SVRI as presenters, organizers, and/or participants to share some of the insights and highlights from the conference and lead a discussion on remaining challenges and priorities for future GBV research and programming.

Panelists will include:

  • Elizabeth Dartnall, Research Manager at SVRI;
  • Amy Bank, Senior Advisor at Puntos de Encuentro;
  • Esther Spindler, Research Officer at Georgetown University’s Institute for Reproductive Health; and
  • Manisha Mehta, Senior Program Officer at Wellspring Advisors.

Space is limited; please RSVP to Laura Bloom at
