Feminist Organizational Development
We support organizations to undertake learning and evaluation from a gender equality and rights-based perspective. They do this using our analytical framework to map inter-connected change processes and collective impact. Partnership support can range from design and implementation of an evaluation for a program/portfolio to deepen understanding of change theory and help build leadership. Work can also include analytical support and training on practices such as “Most Significant Change”. Additionally, we provide guidance on innovative writing/story-telling techniques to identify shared strategies. Take a look at our work on Most Significant Change with Oxfam Novib Partners.
Our founders and associates collaborate with each other and a wide range of partners to pilot new approaches, analytical frameworks, and learning strategies in support of gender and institutional change. Through writing, speaking and increasing the use of social media, we are developing Collaborations for Gender Equality to unite individuals working on different aspects of gender inequality so that we can test new ways of working across geography and mindsets. In the past two years, we have produced four books including Gender at Work: Theory and Practice for the 21st Century, Routledge. We have also produced accompanying multimedia resources that assemble the best thinking and experience on changing institutionalized gender discrimination in diverse organizational sites. And finally, we are producing articles, power-point presentations and other media on diverse issues related to gender equality. You can access some of these in our resource section!
