Description

Description

How can organizations become gender responsive and transformative? The presence of more women does not automatically mean greater equality. This course analyses success stories and barriers, and goes deeper by looking at gender as part of an organizational change management strategy, rather than as a stand-alone item on the agenda.

Target audience

Target audience

Leaders and managers at all levels in the public sector; aid organizations; UN organizations; the private sector; the non-profit sector; gender and HR specialists.

Background

Background

Gender equality has been on the agenda for several decades and while some important gains were made, the progress in recent years has been slow and patchy. Though governments and most private and none for profit organizations view gender justice as an important issue, truly fair and equal participation of women in the world of work is still out of reach. The mere participation of women in the world of work does not by itself guarantee equality. Gender inequitable organizations produce gender inequitable effects (though we see some positive outputs). In order to understand how to impact change in a positive way for gender equality it is critical to understand how  organizations work at the deepest level.

Objectives

Objectives

The workshop proposes to look at how organizations have embraced gender mainstreaming, the success and barriers, but goes much further by looking at gender as part of an organizational change management strategy rather than a “stand alone” agenda item. In this workshop we will not only review the benefits and drawbacks of targeted measures to achieve equality but we will also look at other strategies at the organizational level to take into account gender issues and women’s rights.

In this workshop participants will explore ways of mainstreaming gender in organizational change and apply change management approaches and tools to support and promote gender equality in organizations. Through the integration of the two approaches (change management and gender mainstreaming) we will discuss successful strategies for change and assess the most successful elements conducive for gender equality.
