Senior managers, practitioners and users of public, community and voluntary sector services are currently struggling to develop effective partnership working\ud within increasingly challenging political and organisational environments. Women's organisations face specific challenges to represent their sector and issues\ud effectively within these partnerships\ud This research report explores and theorizes the specific challenges experienced by women who came together from different countries, organisations and sectors to\ud create new methods for mainstreaming women's equality and for sustaining women in leadership roles.\ud It offers:\ud · An approach for supporting partnerships and collaborations between women and between women and men across organisations and sectors;\ud · Methods for facilitating collaboration and learning within and across organisational boundaries.\ud The doctoral research was conducted through action inquiry and based on consultancy practice, 1997-2001. Through the research practical methods were developed for facilitating learning between diverse individuals from different countries, organisations and sectors, and for sustaining them as they implemented new practice within their organisations. This report introduces a conceptual framework for effective working within partnerships and across organisational boundaries and describes the methods and associated skills that were developed. It will be of interest to action researchers and practitioners in women's organisations and within the wider voluntary sector. It will also be of use to women and men who are seeking more effective ways of working to promote gender equality and diversity in public services, in the context of multi organisational, cross sectoral or transnational partnerships.
