For instance, some of you said that 'visibility' and 'effectiveness' are important criteria.
However, when it comes to 'effectiveness', it is very challenging to assess such criterion because evaluations are not planned or are not institutionalised in organisations. Moreover, it is difficult to collect evidence about change - also because change takes time.
Another issue raised is related to the broader national policy context. Depending on the context or when gender equality is taken for granted, giving visibility in itself can be an achievement.
Hi Catarina, I agree with your thoughts on these two criteria. Overall, reflecting on the suggested criteria, I would suggest that another criterion, that could be added when assessing a practice, could be the national (contextually sensitive) nature of a practice.
Thanks Maria (happy to meet you here)!
I understand. I was wondering: how could a criterion on 'context/nature' could be operationalized?
Maybe 'context' can be seen as a subcriterion of 'transferability'? I think, before assessing the transferability of a practice, one should always study the context in which the practice is currently implemented. Would you agree?
I think that this is important. But for example, when we designed the guideline to prevent sexual harassment and abuse in sport (Basque Government, Spain), we took the attitudes and behaviours that had already been identified in other countries. And then, we corroborated them with sportswomen (group sessions), to see if they were out of our context or if we could keep them in. And this helped us in that transsferability.
I think there are quite goog tools that can/should be adapted before designing a practice in each country. Anyway, I insist that I see that sport agents in general are far from identifying a problem. Education and training is fundamental.
