In 2015 gender was incorporated as a core theme area into INASP’s work. By the end of that year (Year 3 of the Strengthening Research and Knowledge Systems (SRKS) programme) INASP’s Research Development and Support (RDS) team had embarked on piloting gender work as defined in the organization’s 2016-2020 strategy. The gender work focused on working mostly with existing partners around activities already being implemented, using available resources and opportunities.
This evaluation reviewed 16 activities implemented at 11 higher education (HE) institutions in seven countries over a period of approximately three years. Our approach included a review of documents, interviews with partners and team members, and a survey of activity organizers, facilitators and participants.
The findings of this evaluation suggest that the original objectives of INASP’s gender-related work with partners have been achieved to a large extent. Many of the activities undertaken by participants were seen as successful by the key stakeholders involved – organizers, participants and INASP staff.
