  • Specific analysis of implementation and governance.

  • Summarizing of results and overall reporting.
  • Organization and implementation of workshops as well as arrangement and implementation of a closing workshop.

The purpose of the evaluation is to provide concrete and detailed information about the gender inequality in the realm of the active labor market policy within the German Social Code Book III (SGB III) and to serve a recommended course of action to optimize the implementation of the gender equality mandate of the German Social Code Book III (SGB III)
