MIMBRERO MALLADO, Concepción; SILVA, Joilson Pereira da  and  ESPINOSA, Leonor María Cantera. Analysis of Gender Equality Competence Present in Cultural Positions. Paidéia (Ribeirão Preto) [online]. 2017, vol.27, n.66, pp.90-97. ISSN 0103-863X.

Articulating the gender dimension in organizations is not easy because their members have to be trained to adopt positions that facilitate the implementation of solutions that help to combat inequalities. The aim of this article was to identify the gender equality competence present in the three types of cultural positions Castells proposed in members of a City CouncilinSevilla-Spain, who wanted to implement gender mainstreaming. The participants were 27 people (16 women and 11 men). The method used was discourse analysis. The obtained results show that, while all competences were present in the project position,in the resistance position, there was none. In the legitimizers, we observed inconsistency in the discourse presented. This arouses considerations on the importance of knowing the gender equality competences in order to implement gender mainstreaming in organizations.
