TRAINING: Gender and Organizational Change
The International Training Centre of the ILO offers a course on Gender and Organizational Change from 11-15 June, in Turin, Italy.
The workshop proposes to look at how organizations have embraced gender mainstreaming, the success stories and the barriers, but goes much further by looking at gender as part of an organizational change management strategy rather than as a “stand alone” agenda item. In this workshop, we will acknowledge the importance of implementing specific measures to favor equality but we will also look at other strategies at the organizational level to take into account gender issues and women’s rights. We will look at what constitutes the foundation of organization to understand the deep biases underlying change management and decision making processes.
Participants will analyze how organizations manage change, particularly when introducing gender equality policies, strategies and actions. We will review the different types of organizations using leading management theories as well as gender frameworks. We will apply specific change management tools to concrete contexts.
Deadline: May 4, 2012
