To work with groups to analyze levels of empowerment, teams may use venn diagrams to visually document perceived areas of change. To do this, the facilitator noted down each dimension of change reported within the group. Next to the dimension, facilitators placed percentages or fractions to note what percent of the group reported that specific type of change. On a piece of paper with a large circle on it to represent the group, the facilitator then drew a circle (or pie chart) to illustrate what portion of the group identified with the change.
For example, if 75 percent of the group felt that courage has been the most significant change in the lives of women, the facilitator would draw a circle within the paper that encompasses only 75 percent of the space.
As a group, Venn Diagrams may help participants to analyze together, which changes have been the most significant within the group, and which dimensions of women’s empowerment have not seen any change, as well as discuss why this may be.
