In 2015, Gender at Work founders and podcast hosts Aruna Rao and David Kelleher, along with Gender at Work Senior Associate, Joanne Sandler and Knowledge Strategist, Carol Miller, collaborated to write a book that has proven to be a must-read for feminists. Gender at Work: Theory and Practice for 21st Century Organizations is a culmination of four activists’ dedication, experience and thought leadership developing and employing a holistic approach to improve gender equality globally. In this ninth episode, we speak with the authors behind this compelling book and take a deep dive into the Gender at Work Analytical Framework which forms its foundation. By offering our listeners a clear exposition of what we really mean by our analytical framework and “change matrix”, the authors shed light on a force for change in both thinking and practice – and hence, hopefully in the lives of women and other oppressed genders around the world.
“Promoting gender equality is not just a complex social engineering project; it also requires difficult internal changes in the institutions ostensibly committed to this project. This volume assembles case histories of feminist institutional change – and stories of feminist warriors’ struggles — that project in vivid, accessible detail the triumphs and traumas of institutional change processes. It cannot fail to inspire.” – Anne Marie Goetz, Professor, Center for Global Affairs, School of Professional Studies, New York University, USA
