Join us for a Strategic Learning & Adaptive Management (SLAM) Meeting on February 6, 2024 focused on using qualitative methods to increase gender and youth inclusion!
In August 2023, the Gender and Youth Activity (GAYA) kicked off its Cultivate Fellowship, which supported fellows to design and use qualitative methods to address learning questions exploring the context and interaction of social inclusion and resilience dynamics in their activities. The ultimate goal was to gather information for adaptive management with the potential for transformative change in communities. The fellowship required a collaboration between a staff member from the gender, youth, and/or social inclusion components of an activity and a staff member from the monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) or the collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) components of an activity. During the collaboration, the team designed learning questions, conducted a full qualitative inquiry, analyzed the data and convened a team to reflect on the data. The team distilled learning and considered how to adapt their activity for transformative impact in light of their learning. In this session, we'll explore the experience of two teams of fellows as they worked together to implement the qualitative inquiry for improved gender and youth inclusion in food security programming.
