Promoting Gender Equality in the Public Sector

Research which examines the strategic approaches adopted by selected public sector organisations to promote gender equality and the case for a public sector duty on gender. Written by Karen Escott & Dexter Whitfield. Published by the Equal Opportunities Commission.


This report was commissioned by the EOC to provide further evidence which could be used to support the introduction of a public duty on gender. Case study research was conducted in six selected, named, public sector organisations in Britain (some of which have a formal statutory duty to promote equality of opportunity and some of which do not). The research examines the strategic approaches which the case study organisations currently adopt to tackle gender equality and assesses the extent to which they addressed equality issues when setting their objectives and forming policies. It also examines the case for a public sector duty on gender. Download the report from:
