Session Abstract (150 words):  Are you interested in “integrating gender” in your evaluations but not sure how to go about it? Want real, tangible examples of gender integration in evaluation practice? This interactive session will have you up on your feet to understand what taking gender into account means for your evaluation. Participants will build their skills to design a gender-integrated evaluation plan for a health development program: integrating gender in a program’s theory of change, defining gender-sensitive evaluation questions, selecting indicators that go beyond sex-disaggregation to measure gender constructs, collecting and interpreting gender data, and disseminating and using results. Participants will apply their new skills using one or two case studies of programs in a developing country. At the end of the session, participants will be equipped with the knowledge, understanding, and skills to strengthen gender components in their own evaluations.
