Asunto: Re: [IGFmaglist] IGF Gender Report Card 2015 - final 

I was struck by also the interest that the NRIs evidenced in 2015, to include gender participation in their survey. Among other suggestions for improvements for the NRIs was to have a standardized registration process for their event, which gathered this information, along with other information, and made it available for their required report. I believe that there is also strong interest in the NRIs to strengthen the engagement of women at all levels in the planning, organizing, presenting, etc. However, I will focus on something that is a barrier. 


If funding is available for more participants, we can grow the 'pie', so to speak, not deny participation to men, or women. [I include youth of both genders in this broad statement]. 

BUT, if there are only a few 'seats' so to speak, we have to understand that there are challenges to have more gender diversity. Thus, I love the idea of posting the report card, but also working collaboratively to find more funding for participation support. So, we can also build out the contact list of possible participants, as well as speakers, but also understand that sometimes it takes a year or two to find one's space. We should strive to support participants, as well as speakers.

Hi all, 

I apologise for multiple emails from me on this thread on the same day. 
Realised I missed some points. 

Renata, the idea of a graphic visualisation is great! We have changed 
what we measured from year to year though, as an improvement to the 
process, but some things are standard. We tried to do a comparative in 
2015, but was a bit too difficult to. Maybe you can also provide some 
thoughts and guidance on this. 

Here are the reports from previous years: 
* 2012: 
* 2013: 
* An article looking at comparison between both years: 
* 2014: 

We're in the midst of writing an article for the 2015 findings. 

And also think the idea of widening the pool for funding to support more 
women and also other under-represented groups, evinced through 
monitoring work, is a fantastic one. The gender DC tried to come up with 
a list of women speakers and resource persons who could speak on a range 
of thematic issues, in particular, from a gendered perspective, but not 
sure if this was sustained. But could be useful from a mentoring 
perspective as well, as you mentioned Marilyn. 

Chengetai, let us know how we can support sharing the findings on the 
IGF site. 

Thanks again!
