The present research was conducted to explore gender diversity management practices in public sector universities and investigate relationship between gender diversity management practices and gender sensitization in teaching and non-teaching staff. It was hypothesized that (a) there is likely to be relationship between organizational gender diversity management practices and gender sensitization (b) gender and position (teaching and non-teaching staff) have main effect on gender sensitization in university employees. Further it was hypothesized that gender sensitization is effected by interaction between gender and position (teaching and non-teaching staff).The sample was composed of N = 100 teaching and non-teaching employees from University of the Punjab and Lahore College for Women University, Lahore. Organizational gender diversity management practices Questionnaire (University of Stirling, 2007) and gender sensitization questionnaire (UNDP Macedonia University, 2012) were administered to each participant for assessment purposes. Pearson Product-Moment Correlation and two way analysis of variance were performed to analyze the data. The results indicated non-significant relationship between organizational gender diversity management practices and gender sensitization. Results further showed that there is no main effect for gender and position on gender sensitization and no interaction effect of gender and position on gender sensitization was found. Further implications of the research along with the limitations and suggestions are being discussed.
