Greetings, Dear "Feminist Issues in Evaluation TIG" Members and Guests,

A warm welcome to our website and community of practice.  

The Feminist TIG brings together a dynamic group of evaluators, feminists and gender equality advocates who are united in their passion to promote gender equality and ensure that women’s experiences and voices are integrated more systematically into evaluation practice.

We are excited to present this resource, where we hope you will not only find relevant information but also help us to strengthen and enhance its relevance for our membership. This platform also allows us to communicate with one another. So if you’d like to share/add a resource, start a thread or make any key announcements, you have come to the right place.

We invite you to join and participate in the Feminist Issues in Evaluation TIG:

  • If you have not joined our TIG through your AEA membership, please consider doing so. We send a few communications to our TIG members via email throughout the year.
  • Submit a blog post for AEA365 Tip a Day. Each year, the Feminist TIG has a standing week that coincides with International Women’s Day (March 8th) to showcase contributions from feminist evaluators. Contact our Program Co-Chairs for next opportunities: Jane Whynot [janewhyn021@uottawa.ca] and Christine Bell [christine.fabian@wisc.edu]. 
  • Contribute an article for the Feminist TIG Newsletter. Please contact our Newsletter Editor: Kathryn Mathes [drkate1960@gmail.com].
In the meantime, please keep an eye out for our exciting program of panels, multi-paper sessions and workshops at AEA2019. We look forward to connecting with you this fall in Minneapolis, MN.
