This chapter examines gender audit as a research method for organizational learning and change in a higher education context in post-Soviet Kazakhstan. This study examined the gender-related practices evident within one key part of the formal curriculum course syllabi. The results of the study provide a first step toward informing gender policy at the university as well as providing sample guidelines for other organizations in the region interested in examining their own policies as they move toward greater gender equality.
We are grateful to the funding for this project, which was carried out within the framework of the joint project of the National Commission on Women’s Affairs and Family-Demographic Policy under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan and UNDP in Kazakhstan “Empowering Women.” Also, we would like to thank Raikhan Satymbekova, M.A., for her research support which made the gender audit possible.
