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.

Setting the Stage: A Dialogue on GBV and Youth
March 22, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
On March 22, 2016, the GBV task force held the first event in an exciting year-long series on Gender-Based Violence and Youth. Over the course of 2016, this USAID Office of Population and Reproductive Health funded learning will feature presentations and discussions focusing on GBV in the context of life course and developmental stages of adolescents with the goal of providing a space for dialogue among child rights advocates and gender-based violence and women’s health and rights advocates. The kick off event explored the prevalence of childhood violence, impacts on reproductive health and well-being, and promising approaches for a way forward.
