Session Abstract (150 words): 

World Learning, IREX, Leonard Cheshire, Women's Refugee Commission, and Help Age came together to support an initiative, that aimed to increase social inclusion in programs. As a result, a toolkit called - Transforming Agency, Access and Power was created, and is available online for organizations to circulate and use. This session aims to gather like-minded development actors to gather and discuss advancements in Social Inclusion Analysis methodologically, learn from each other what methodologies have been used, what has been learned from using those methodologies and what the next steps are. The facilitators of this session will also share that TAAP has a Community of Practice and explain the participants of the session the processes of how to join and what the CoP has been able to achieve thus far.
