This is a discussion led by Rituu B Nanda regarding Laura Hughston's report which presents a child-led evaluation of a multi-sectoral programme in Cambodia seeking to empower adolescent girls and address the challenges they face accessing quality education. The original discussion can be found on Gender and Evaluation.
This week, EvalPartners will be launching EvalGender+, the global partnership for equity-focused and gender-responsive evaluations. The launch is part of the Global Evaluation Week in Kathmandu to celebrate the International Year of Evaluation.
Gillian Fletcher's blog and new resource on Addressing Gender in Impact Evaluation is, thus, particularly timely. A lot has been written about gender impact but what is important to consider?
What are the exemplars of evaluation that have helped your learning about evaluation, or that you use to support others' learning? How can we identify and document exemplars, and support their use?
We're trialling a new format for member-contributed resources and we want you to try it out. This new format focuses on collecting more descriptive information from the contributor about how they used the resource and who they think would find it useful. Our goal is to build a collection of relevant1 & credible resources, with descriptions that enable people to quickly determine if the resource will be applicable to their needs.
On Wednesday, July 29, Leslie Groves and I gave a live Q and A that focused on questions from blog readers. We received so many interesting questions and clearly had too little time for in-depth conversation.

In the second blog in the 4-part series about participation in evaluation, Irene Guijt and Leslie Groves focus on making power relationships and values in 'participatory' evaluation processes explicit to avoid tokenistic participation.
Ça y est! Le Réseau francophone des évaluateurs émergents a été officiellement lancé le 26 mai 2015 à Montréal, Québec à l’occasion du 36e congrès de la Société canadienne d’évaluation! (la présentation PPT). Ce lancement a été commandité par Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Overseas Development Institute (ODI) has published a “10 things to know about evaluation” infographic, in support of the International Year of Evaluation. I was part of the team that drafted it and over 9 months, 8 meetings and 16 revisions I discovered just how difficult it can be to communicate a complicated set of ideas to a non-expert audience.
