Institutionalizing Gender in UK NGOs


Wallace, Tina. 1998. “Institutionalizing Gender in UK NGOs.” Development in Practice 8 (2): 159–72.

Author: Tina Wallace


Drawing on recent research, it has been explored how far and in what ways UK NGOs have tried to incorporate gender into the policies and procedures of their international development work, and how far a formal recognition of gender issues is shaping the way each organization functions. The strengths and weaknesses of different strategies are assessed (such as specialist staff or units, formal gender policies, gender training, equal opportunity recruitment policies, and mainstreaming) for transforming organizational practice.
