CARE International is committed to achieving gender equality and empowerment for women and girls through their humanitarian and development programming using the Gender Equality and Women’s Voice (GEWV) approach. The CARE Gender Marker is one of the key tools that supports the implementation of GEWV Approach. The CARE Gender Marker, released in 2016, helps the organisation to deliver on this commitment, and to continuously improve programming to better meet the needs of women, men, boys, and girls. CARE’s Gender Marker is a self-assessment program quality and learning tool. It measures the integration of gender into programming along the CARE Gender Continuum from harmful to transformative. The Gender Marker enables CARE to track, improve on, and support more effective, gender integrated programming. The Gender Marker is designed to be used in combination with Monitoring, Evaluation and Accountability systems to help teams reflect on the integration of gender in order to learn from and improve the gendered approach of their work.
