The Changing Landscape of Gendor ar SPDC: An Assessment
The Changing Landscape of Gender at SPDC : An Assessment

http://www.spdc.org.pk/Publication_detail.aspx?sysID=789

SPDC undertook an exercise to determine the level of gender sensitivity in its research output and within its organisation. The exercise provided an assessment of the extent to which SPDC meets the needs of both women and men in its research and contributes to an enhanced understanding of gender issues as well as the gender dynamics prevalent at the institutional level in the organisation. The findings of the exercise indicate that although increasing importance has been given to gendered investigation, interpretation and understanding, there remains much scope for improvement, and a long-term commitment to gender mainstreaming is needed.
