Enhancing Gender in Co-Creation Webinar

Bringing an informed gender perspective to government co-creation and commitment design is key to ensuring open government truly works for everyone. This is particularly essential in a year like 2021, as the pandemic continues to demonstrate how important it is to consider reforms from a gender and diversity perspective and address specific gaps in service delivery. And with an increase in online co-creation, new opportunities and challenges exist to broaden the base of participation with meaningful engagement of women, gender diverse, and LGBTQIA+ communities.

With more than 100 action plans in development, co-creating governments have an exciting opportunity to be inclusive champions in their action plans.

This webinar will bring the OGP community together to share best practices on gender integration in co-creation processes, learning from research and practice around the world. We’ll hear cases studies from Argentina, who has conducted a GBA+ review of their action plan and sought to bring in feminist voices and line ministries, and the Philippines, who brought in gender perspectives in partnership with CARE Philippines’s action research.

Following these examples, OGP will share a draft gender analysis toolkit to support governments and organizations who want to improve their own assessments of the co-creation process as well as commitments themselves. The development of this tool was carried out with the aid of a grant from the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada.
