  • To determine the indicators of gender responsiveness in Human Resource and Organizational Development (HROD) interventions initiated by learning service providers; 
  • To determine the extent to which HROD practices of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) are gender-responsive;
  • To find out the gender values, attitudes and behavior of top management and HR managers in DSWD; and
  • To examine the ways in which gender-responsive HROD practices influenced the gender values, organizational performance, and relationships of employees in DSWD.

Project Description:

The project involved the conduct of case studies on the HROD practices of CSC and DSWD. It examined the extent and the ways in which gender values and concerns have been integrated into these practices, and assessed whether such gender-responsive practices have made an impact on the employees of the two organizations. The research project also identified good practices on the incorporation of gender equality concerns in HROD. These results and recommendations will be interpreted as a model of gender mainstreaming in HROD.
