Gender Equality in Organisations and the Effect of Public Recognition: The Case of the Equality Is Quality Award

This article draws on a research study involving the organisations distinguished with the Equality is Quality Award (PIQ). It results from the compilation, analysis and categorisation of all the recognised practices, as well as of the analysis of the content of institutional information. Conclusions are also drawn from the data gathered through the questionnaire sent to the awarded organisations. Findings suggest that the practices recognised as exemplary were not fully embedded in a gender mainstreaming approach. It is also concluded that the award has not contributed to an effective institutionalisation of policies, processes and practices geared towards the promotion of equality between women and men in the awarded-winning organisations.
