Evaluation as a Transformative Strategy for Preventing Sexual Violence
Donna Mertens gave the keynote presentation at the 2015 RPE Leadership Training
What is evaluation’s role in preventing sexual violence? Concerted action is needed to make visible the systemic beliefs and values that support sexual violence and to shift cultural beliefs and values towards a greater respect for the rights of all to live without threat of violence.
Evaluators can conduct their work to facilitate the needed transformation through collection, analysis, interpretation and use of data to inform their efforts and provide information to impact change.
