• Measurement Framework to operationalize Agency and Social Norms around Women’s Economic Empowerment. Check out Emerge Resources.

Evidence-based Measures of Empowerment for Research on Gender Equality (EMERGE) is an initiative focused on measurement of gender equality and empowerment. The platform is designed as a repository of measures and resources around gender equality and empowerment for researchers and practitioners working on development, program monitoring and evaluation, and for consideration of state or national indicators to monitor progress on UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG).


The mission of the Center on Gender Equity and Health is to conduct innovative multidisciplinary research to understand and eliminate gender inequities in health, and to provide academic and practitioner training toward achievement of these goals.


Use the dynamic dashboard below to view the total number of measures that we have on Emerge across different dimensions. The drop down menus help in filtering the number of measures by parameters such as psychometric score, citation frequency etc.  The dashboard updates itself as we keep adding more measures to Emerge.
