Monitoring and Assessing Gender Gap In Events
Performance indicators for monitoring and evaluating gender roles and inequalities in European high-level policy events.

Green

Good behaviour level

Amber

Level is correct, but could be improved

Red

Bad behaviour level

We propose the development of a tool based on performance indicators, which will allow monitoring and evaluating gender roles and inequalities in European high-level policy events in order to tackle the underrepresentation of women. This tool will act as a traffic light. It will indicate red when the event has a bad behavior level with respect to gender issues in participation, amber when it is correct but could be improved and green when it has a good behavior level. The event achieving a green will be considered as a best practice and could be granted as a Gender Seal. When the result is amber or red, MAGGIE will give guidelines for the improvement of its performance.

How does it work?

Literature review and expert interviews

To identify and discuss which dimensions and indicators should be considered when monitoring gender gap.

List of indicators

After different versions and approaches, indicators have been arranged in a hierarchical structure and grouped in three relevant dimensions: Female participation, Organizational culture and General observations.

Pilot monitoring of the conferences and events

In each event, all data are manually gathered in person, following an observation guide. This is a thorough process recording exposition times, registering the order of questions and making other observations, among other activities.

Development of focus group: local, national and European level

The list of indicators has been presented to different groups of gender experts for screening and prioritization. Only the most relevant indicators have been chosen to be used in the monitoring process.

Prioritization of the indicators by the experts

MAGGIE’s tool will be based on a combination of two multicriteria techniques: AHP and AHPSort.

Development of MAGGIE tools

MAGGIE’s tool works as a traffic light.  It will indicate red when the event has a bad behavior level with respect to gender issues in participation, amber when it is correct but could be improved and green when it has a good behavior level. 

Monitoring of the events with MAGGIE’s tool

The event achieving a green will be considered as a best practice and could be granted as a Gender Seal. When the result is amber or red, MAGGIE will give guidelines for the improvement of its performance.

Granting of gender seal

MAGGIE will allow us to create a Gender Seal to benchmark the different events under study.
