The first list of indicators emerged with an exhaustive literature review about gender gap in conferences, academic conferences and different events in order to identify which dimensions (or criteria) should be considered when monitoring gender gap. Also, we conducted some interviews with gender experts and relevant academics to build up this first list of indicators. According to this first list of indicators, we attended and monitored the World Forum for Democracy (Strasbourg (France), November 2019).

Indicators (Criteria) have been arranged in a hierarchical structure and grouped in four relevant aspects:



Organizational Culture


Afterwards, we developed a focus group with 8 local gender experts or relevant academics in the local level.

The joint list of both types of indicators has been presented for screening, discussion and prioritization. Only the most relevant ones have been chosen to be used in the monitoring process.
