Abstract

Oxfam UK/I sponsored a gender learning workshop in April 1996 for 40 Oxfam staff members from around the world as well as UK-based staff and invited guests. Case studies were presented as examples of good practice, and key issues such as management performance and the use of incentives for developing the best practice on gender were discussed. Major issues generating debate centered around budget cuts versus gender performance and the need for leadership commitment. The workshop provided an opportunity to examine gender practice from the point of view of front-line personnel. The International Director of Oxfam UK/I stressed the importance of focusing the agency's work through a gender perspective.
