Where does feminist management sit on this spectrum and is there even such a thing?

This is something we started to ask ourselves as the Women’s Fund Fiji navigated, documented and ‘managed’ multiple, concurrent processes of change in becoming an independent entity.

In our experience, we found feminist management to exist outside this typical management spectrum – like a parallel path that is designed to reach a similar outcome but is internally motivated uses alternative, transformative practices, and is more inclusive and holistic.

We think of it as having an ‘arms’ approach where nothing is off-limits – especially the impact of such processes on people’s realities – and we promote the value of relationships.

The major change processes we undertook to become independent were the development of our Trust Deed, the establishment of a new governance structure, and the creation of a new vision, mission, shared values and strategic plan.
