To find ways to change organizations into more gender-equitable or gender-balanced workplaces remains one of the core issues in the field of gender, work and organization. This special issue arose out of our shared interest in understanding two key aspects of gender and organizational change: how do we translate gender inequities insights into processes of organizational change to deal with those inequities and what can we learn from insights into processes of organizational change and their impact on gender regimes? This special issue arises out of the call for papers following the latter conference. While in some ways the collection of articles confirmed our existing concerns that the complex nature of gendered processes does not lend itself to simple solutions, it nonetheless provided insights that go some way to bridging the critique–application divide: indicating strategies of change that take into account the discursive, intersectional, situated and paradoxical character of both gender and organizational change. We shall explore all four of these elements in relation to each of the articles below. Each in their idiosyncratic ways, the four articles included in this special issue take stock of one or several of the questions raised above.
