A key step towards achieving gender inclusive democracy is women’s political empowerment. Drawing on extensive research and expertise, this session details USAID’s updated Women’s Political Participation and Leadership (WPPL) Assessment Framework, and its special focus on men and elite gatekeepers. Following the introduction to the framework, we will present collected findings from eight country assessments using the framework, identifying patterns of problems, the barriers underlying them, and the openings that may enable effective programming for gender-inclusive democracies.

The DRG Learning Forum is an annual event supporting the generation, curation, and dissemination of DRG evidence and technical methods for DRG practitioners. The forum followed two closely related tracks. The Findings track focused on what we have learned from the DRG Learning Agenda and focused on evidence and learning that can inform program design and implementation. The Process track focused on sharing through a series of salons how we learn and share evidence, best practices, skills and resources on key topics of interest in the DRG space.
