CARE’s Gender Marker leads the sector as a self-assessment scoring tool to track how well our projects are creating change for women and girls. It enables us to learn about our progress and identify areas where we can improve. This Gender Marker is widely acknowledged as one of the most comprehensive out there in terms of scale and scope.
The tool monitors how well gender has been integrated into humanitarian and development work throughout a project cycle. CARE staff reflect on how a project contributes to increasing gender equality and use the outcome to calculate how they scored along the CARE Gender Continuum from gender unaware to gender transformative.
