ALIGN webinar: cross-country perspectives on gender norms
July 20, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
The Advancing Learning and Innovation on Gender Norms (ALIGN) project, led by ODI and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a new initiative connecting those working on social and gender norms across a range of sectors and issues. Its aim is to further knowledge sharing and innovation to ensure evidence and learning on norm change informs more effective policy and practice.
This webinar introduces the ALIGN platform and discusses some of the key debates and concepts shaping cutting-edge development work on addressing harmful gender norms. Drawing from ODI’s research on gender norms alongside the experiences of projects in Uganda and India, the panel discusses: What are the key concepts and evidence for understanding gender norm change? How can programmes better respond to emerging evidence and context-specific dimensions of gender norms? What challenges, opportunities and learnings can be drawn from projects in Uganda and India to inform policy and practice?
