A Manual for Gender Audit Facilitators: The ILO Participatory Gender Audit Methodology
by International Labour Organization
SummaryThis Manual provides gender audit facilitators with guidelines and practical instructions on the planning and implementation of participatory gender audits in an organizational context. Its content and structure are based on training materials that are being used to train facilitators undertaking participatory gender audits within the ILO. It has been published to reach a wider target group in response to numerous requests from other organizations and structures such as the ILO constituents – governments, workers’ and employers’ organizations – as well as many UN agencies and national and international training institutions, that wish to undertake gender audits within their own organizational context.
A step-by-step approach is used that leads facilitators through each stage of the process culminating with a set of recommendations and an action plan on how to improve the gender mainstreaming strategy in a given institutional setting. It also explains the rationale behind the use of the participatory methodology, its usefulness and relevance.
