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.


Understanding Masculinities in the Middle East and North Africa Region

The event will highlight key entry points for engaging men and boys in gender equality. Focus will be aimed at community-based and national programs, campaigns, and advocacy efforts, as well as exploring perceptions and realities of masculinity in the Middle East and North Africa.

Positive Youth Development in Health Programming: How Does Engaging Boys and Young Men Fit in? A Technical Marketplace

The IGWG's Male Engagement Task Force is excited to host its next virtual event, which will focus on positive youth development for adolescent boys and young men (ABYM), particularly as it relates to family planning and reproductive health; HIV/AIDS; gender-based violence; maternal, newborn, and child health; and infectious diseases (such as COVID-19, tuberculosis, and malaria). For this event, we are seeking submissions of brief presentations highlighting recent research or programming around positive youth development for ABYM.
