Organizations and institutions are having to respond quickly to technological, political and social changes, factors that require resilience to adapt and transform to rapidly shifting conditions. Current definitions of resilience often associate resilience with characteristics such as strength, active decision making and heroic expressions of leadership that entail individual acts of heroism in line with a certain type of masculinity. This seminar will present a gendering resilience model. The model uses the feminist perspective as an analytical lens to make gender visible in organizations, to encourage equity and allow space for diverse voices. The purpose of the gendering resilience model is to challenge current and dominant conceptualizations of organizational resilience and to encourage inclusivity through systemic analysis of gendered structures, gendered actions and gendered language.
