Internship in Monitoring and Evaluating Systemic Change

Internship period: October 2021 – February 2022

As part of our strategic framework, CIDSE seeks to advocate for systems change. What is systemic change? The crises that we face in our areas of work are connected by root systems of injustice, such as patriarchy, colonialism, and the logic of market growth. The intern will work directly with the Monitoring Evaluation and Learning Advisor, and contribute to and participate in the following CIDSE activities for 2021:

  1. Support the overall research, monitoring and evaluation work of CIDSE
  2. Support in the mapping of CIDSE members’ experience and approach to measuring and evaluating systemic change and transformative advocacy;
  3. Consultations, training, learning and sharing meetings with members and partners around Cidse’s strategic planning process, more particularly, helping to organise the ongoing consultation meetings of the Steering Group, support to the external consultant, and prepare follow-up notes;
  4. Reporting and analysis of the data, story-telling and communicating about Systemic Change through the different internal and online reports and presentations to members of CIDSE in collaboration with the CIDSE Communication Team.
