Bringing Gender-Responsive Principles into Practice Evidence from the Evaluation of the PACE Center for Girls (2017)

This brief describes the principles of gender-responsive programs, summarizes the literature, and presents highlights of MDRC’s implementation study of PACE Center for Girls. The PACE evaluation offers an important opportunity to describe how gender-responsive principles are put into operation in a real-world setting - across 14 locations in Florida - and to investigate the effects on girls’ lives (p. 12).
