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.

Event Summary

The objective of the event is to share a common, global set of minimum standards that encourages organizations to commit to and invest in efforts that advance gender equality for all. We seek to harmonize the practice of mainstreaming gender into programing and organization to promote increased communication and coordination, offering an agreed-upon set of minimum standards to further encourage organizations to commit to and invest in efforts that will advance gender equality among development practitioners. It is envisioned that all organizations working in the field of international development and humanitarian response recognize, adopt, and, adhere, and hold themselves accountable to a minimum level of gender mainstreaming in their organization widely, and specifically in programs.
