Organizational gender culture: a diagnostic experience for the application of gender mainstreaming


This paper focuses on a diagnostic structure of the organizational gender culture applied during a project to design an equality plan for the institutionalization of gender mainstreaming in a city council of Andalusia (Spain). Fifty people participated. From a participatory action perspective, observations were recorded in a field diary and narrative interviews and nominal groups were held. The results reflect the relationship between the types of perception of Gender Climate, Gender Competences and Positions adopted by those who participate for applying the gender approach. In addition, the participants show positions of rejection and facilitation of the evaluation process, as well as various forms of participation; observing differences among departments. The conclusions of the article indicate that the evaluation structure facilitates the application of gender mainstreaming to the organization.
