  • ISSN : 0036-0767



Gender mainstreaming is considered to be an essential part of good governance and is critical for all management levels to integrate into all aspects of their work including policies, activities and programmes. The National Policy Framework for Women's Empowerment and Gender Equality, 2000, and the Strategic Framework for Gender Equality within the Public Service, 2006, ensure that the process of gender mainstreaming is at the centre of the transformation processes within all the structures, policies, procedures, practices and programmes, while the Women Empowerment and Gender Equality Bill, 2013, gives effect to Section 9 of the , by arguing for the equal representation of women in all decision-making positions and structures. The article aims to analyse the senior management challenges associated with gender mainstreaming in the South African Public Service, specifically the National School of Government, by focusing on the policy environment enabling gender mainstreaming, the challenges associated with gender mainstreaming and by offering considerations to address these management challenges.
