MIMBRERO MALLADO, Concepción; CANTERA ESPINOSA, Leonor María  and  SILVA, Joilson Pereira da. Implementation of gender mainstreaming in organizations through certifications. Estud. psicol. (Campinas) [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.3, pp.423-434. ISSN 1982-0275.

Inequalities between women and men persist in organizations in spite of political and social efforts to fight this phenomenon. Gender equality certifications have been recognized in Spain as one of the political measures aimed at combating gender imbalances since the promulgation of the organic Law nº 3/2007 on effective equality of women and men. This article aims to identify the approaches adopted by public and private organizations that are responsible to promote gender equality certifications in response to gender mainstreaming implementation. Content analysis of publications related to gender certifications was carried out. The results show that in many cases these certifications are granted disregarding essential indicators to implement the gender mainstreaming approach. Similarly, they have been used to boost profit since it indicates a distinguishing quality of these organizations.
