Feminist Principles in Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability, and Learning
Facilitator: Anna Du Vent
This workshop will guide participants through Oxfam Canada’s Seven Foundations to Feminist Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL). Oxfam’s feminist approach challenges practitioners to think differently about evidence, push the boundaries on data collection, and question who gives meaning and power to knowledge. Through these challenges, participants will engage in an iterative process of applying and reflecting the principles of the approach.
This workshop will introduce the seven foundations, grounded in three recent Oxfam project examples including the following projects:
• The mid-term evaluation of a six-country project, which integrated a participatory, peer-to-peer approach, co-designed by project partners.
• Women’s Voice and Leadership – Pakistan, including local women’s rights organizations, Oxfam in Pakistan (OiP), and Oxfam Canada.
Participants will have the opportunity to ‘deep dive’ into the three project examples with country-based staff and partners leading discussions in breakout rooms.
Methodologies that can be incorporated into feminist MEAL approaches will be shared and participants will have the opportunity to experience at least one of these methodologies.
