Abstract

This presentation introduces participants to a systemic thinking evaluation guidance, produced by UN Women. The ISE4GEMs is a new approach for the Sustainable Development Goals Era, which due to the many interrelated and interconnected SDGs, requires evaluators to think systemically, systematically and intersectionally. We introduce the GEMs framework - a framework for complex and systemic intersectional analysis which calls to attention culturally appropriate and ethical practices in evaluation planning, conduct, analysis and dissemination phases. The ISE4GEMs seeks to promote social transformation by understanding complex phenomena through a systemic approach and importantly, building evaluation capacity and every stage. The GEMs framework invokes an ethical imperative in the systemic methodological approach to the principles and practices to hear from different voices, values and forms of evidence to promote fairness, equity, accessibility and sustainability. This presentation will discuss both the theory and learned practice of its application with the UN and other global participants.
