In this chapter we use the lens of Critical Sensemaking (CSM) to review the literature on organizational change and gender. Specifically we focus on two interrelated themes: (i) organizational change programs and the gendering of organization—exploring the impact of such programs of gendered practices; and (ii) gendered organization and change—exploring the implications of feminist theory for organizational change practices. We conclude with a synthesis of insights from the literature review and suggested strategies for changing gender and gendering change.
