Wednesday, May 2, 2018 - 12:00 to 14:00

The seminar will present the results of a meta-analysis examining the overall impact of women’s empowerment projects evaluated as part of Oxfam GB’s Effectiveness Reviews. It provides an example of how using meta-analysis in the presence of a robust organisational global evaluation framework can enable evidence-based learning, organisational accountability and better programme implementation. Results show a positive and significant impact on the Women’s Empowerment Index and mixed results with its individual indicators. It also found statically significant overall effects where the individual studies were too underpowered to detect impact.
