Many international development organizations have committed to advancing gender equality in their programs as an essential component of successful development. Less attention has been given to how those same principles and practices are- or are not – applied to organizational operations and culture, and what that means for their ability to effectively implement gender-equitable programs. Organizations are beginning to recognize the value of gender equality as an organizational as well as a programmatic priority, and realize that gender mainstreaming – the pursuit of greater gender equality internally – is both the right thing and the smart thing to do.
