"The value of this collection is in its recognition of the interrelationship of what are traditionally seen as the separate spheres of work and family. . .a useful contribution." 

Sara Charlesworth

The presented case studies on organiszational change and gender equity demonstrate how the interplay of organizational culture, practices and the organisation of work can contribute to gender equity. The authors outline basic principles for the design of organizational development processes towards more gender equity. This was highly valued by our students who work as gender equity officers, consultants and gender experts.
