Understanding the role of gender in organizations is becoming increasingly relevant. With attention focusing on diversity, organizations need to develop approaches that focus on the root cause of workplace inequity, rather than only the symptoms. Research into gender in organizations has shifted focus over time from viewing gender as something brought into organizations by employees, to viewing organizations as stages for the reproduction of gender expectations. While theory has moved to stress the importance of the context, current methods of measuring that context, while useful, have limitations. To address these issues, this chapter discusses the concept of organizational gender climate and introduces a new way of measuring gender climate.
