W8: A Demonstration of the STEPS (Steps to Transforming Evaluation Practice for Social Change)
Limited Capacity seats available

Participants will understand how the STEPS resource can facilitate their work. Participants will understand how STEPS can support a participatory rights-based social justice approach to program planning, and monitoring and evaluation. Participants will understand what is unique to the STEPS resource. Participants will understand how STEPS can help them create locally meaningful and measurable objectives and indicators.Description: Demonstration of the STEPS (Steps to Transforming Evaluation Practice for Social Change) program planning, monitoring and evaluation resource. Participants will (ideally) be accessing the STEPS resource on computers for much of the workshop. (STEPS is a free program planning, monitoring and evaluation resource, funded by the Ford Foundation, on the web and CD, in English and Spanish.) STEPS is intended for organizations working towards the goals of women's empowerment and gender equality, especially those in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). The workshop will demonstrate how STEPS can help organizations apply a rights-based social justice perspective to their program planning, monitoring and evaluation process. It will include showing participants how STEPS teaches and supports the program development process- for example arguing for and teaching how to develop a Theory of Change, and helping users break down complex social and health concepts, such as women's empowerment, into measurable and locally relevant components that can be the basis for programming and evaluation. STEPS emphasizes self-learning in order to make M&E a meaningful and continuous aspect of the program process. It supports those who are most familiar with the program -those who directly provide services and the recipients of those services - to actively participate in M&E. This workshop will demonstrate how STEPS can assist organizations in making the program process a continual cycle of learning, improvement, and accountability.
