Who should participate?

The learning event is most relevant for country-level staff who are specifically working on VAWG/GBV programs that are engaged in changing (or strengthening positive) attitude, norms and behaviours linked to VAWG/GBV. 
Knowledge Hub staff and a limited number of other Oxfam staff, who have relevant contributions on the topic will be in invited to attend.
We are also planning on creating an external event that will happen in the later afternoon into the evening on Day 1 of the conference. We expect that Oxfam staff from the Knowledge Exchange Event, academics and donors will participate in this event

Why Participate?

1. The Power to Prevent is an exciting opportunity for Oxfam staff to learn and share about our own successes and challenges in implementing programs that target attitude, norm and behaviour change (both negative and positive).
2. The Power to Prevent will allow Oxfam staff to deepen their knowledge on the both cutting edge intervention and MEL strategies for this type of program. In particular we are hoping to strengthen our intervention and MEL strategies on how to target norm change in VAWG/GBV programs
3. The Power to Prevent will provide spaces for colleagues working on similar issues to get to know each other better. The external panel will also provide an opportunity to network with researchers and donors

What are the responsibilities of the participants?

The Power to Prevent is one learning moment in a larger, on-going knowledge initiative for 2015-2016 By participating in The Power to Prevent we would like participants to:

a) Commit to integrate relevant knowledge and tools generated from learning event into their program practice
b) Commit to share the knowledge generated in the Power to Prevent with relevant colleagues and partners who are unable to attend. We will prepare a presentation of key findings from the Power to Prevent to facilitate knowledge sharing
c) Continue to participate in this knowledge exchange virtually (post event).

What is the overall aim of The Power to Prevent Learning Event?

To provide a dynamic space to improve the knowledge of key Oxfam staff about effective intervention and MEAL strategies and other program practice in changing negative and emphasizing positive, attitudes, norms and behaviours in order to prevent VAWG/GBV.
