The work of the Center for Gender in Organizations (CGO), an academic research institute, serves as a fundamental call to action. Our research and experience repeatedly demonstrate that gender equity and diversity greatly improve work practice and overall organizational effectiveness.

Gender is an organizational issue. Our research emphatically shows that businesses benefit when they view gender equity as a strategic imperative and a source of competitive advantage. It is this vital link between gender equity and productivity at the level of work practice that forms the cornerstone of CGO's work.

Our research on Gender Equity and Change, Leadership, Diversity and Globalization consistently clarifies and advances thinking and practice in these areas. Our research and investigation into the professional workplace position our faculty affiliates to serve as speakers, consultants, trainers and developers of customized research for sponsoring clients. It is this rare combination of research and practice that gives our work practical immediacy that our clients use to improve individual, team and organizational performance.
