  • Synopsis
    This source book reflects a growing interest in practical experiences in confronting and embedding gender considerations in organizations. The introduction provides a context and considers some of the reasons for failed attempts to make gender sensitive policies a reality; chapters put the challenges of organizational change in an international perspective and review strategies used in Kenya, Mali and elsewhere. Annotated bibliographies help to make the most relevant literature (including 'grey' material) accessible.
