CARE Gender Marker: new improved version!
CARE’s Gender Marker has just expanded to be used in both humanitarian and development programming! The Gender Marker helps teams measure the integration of gender into programming from harmful to transformative, using a simple grading system from 0 to 4. Initially designed in 2013, this revised iteration of the Gender Marker builds on findings from the pilot phase and the team is working to incorporate into CARE’s Project Information and Impact Reporting System (PIIRs). There are a series of short videos about the Gender Marker available here
Find out about how different parts of CARE are using the Gender Marker in the Learning Paper.
Our gender marker data can tell us a lot about the degree to which CARE is integrating gender into our programming. Recognizing this, and the opportunities to glean insights surrounding gender program quality, learning and accountability, we’ve developed this data visualization site using the PowerBi platform. The site can be accessed here: Gender Marker data viz
In addition, to help users get started, we’ve developed a How-To video covering the basics features and function of the gender marker data visualization platform, this short tutorial can be accessed here.

CARE Canada is slowly integrating the gender marker as a tool that will be used to measure the program quality of its entire portfolio. Our KPI is that 70% of our humanitarian work is sensitive and 75% of our long term development work is responsive. Our current commitments and next steps can be found on this Yammer presentation.
