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 building, like how to use film for social and behavior change communication. 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.

March 8, 2013 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
In honor of International Women’s Day with the GBV Task Force of the IGWG held on event on March 8, 2013 featuring Ashika Gunasena, Director, Program Quality and Learning, of CARE Sri Lanka, who spoke on “Lessons from Sri Lanka: Ten Years of Promoting Positive Behaviors, Attitudes, Norms and Policies for Preventing GBV.”
This lively discussion focused on CARE’s work in Sri Lanka and how it has approached the topic of gender-based violence by working on gender norms. This relatively new program encountered societal challenges to bringing up the topic of gender and violence, but has made much progress on changing the way women and men felt about violence.
