Looking for change: documentation of national women's organizations working towards inclusion and diversity
Documents the struggles associated with inclusion and diversity within national women's groups. Examines how organizational structures facilitate or hinder inclusion and diversity with the intention of reflecting on organizational structures and change rather than on the evaluation of these structures. Data was gathered through interviews which were carried out with twelve national women's organizations. An open-ended interview schedule was developed and used in all of the interviews. In addition to participating in the interview, the groups provided written information such as by-laws, constitutions, newsletters and policies on issues of inclusion and diversity. This report exclusively addresses movement and achievement in relation to inclusion of diverse groups of women who differ from the 'mainstream' or dominant group in terms of their sexual orientation, ability, official language, race and class. Having found no apparent relation between organizational structure and degree of diversity and inclusion, the researchers applied various other frameworks to the question. They conclude that creating conditions which might lead to greater inclusion and diversity is within the reach of many national women's organizations. A number of recommendations are provided at the end of the report. Although this project was limited to national women's organizations its application is much wider. Groups working on various issues and at various levels will find the report useful.
