Keywords:gender, local authorities, administrative development, Algeria
The present paper aims at exploring the relationship between organizational climate and gender within Algerian local authorities, mobilizing Mixed Method Research MMR, qualitative and quantitative methods. The qualitative study – interviews with civil servants – revealed in two stages, the socially constructed position. Otherwise, a quantitative study was carried out on civil servants in five Algerian local authorities (Blida department), allowed us to analyze the relationship between organizational climate and gender within local authorities. The results give us some insights: Gender (in the organizational climate) is not decisive for civil servants. Our quantitative research does not reveal any significant differences between men and women (civil servants) on the perception of the organizational climate and managerial context of local authority. In addition, the qualitative research reveals that there is no competition between the different categories of civil servants. Furthermore, competition is ineffective between women and men civil servants, who apparently do not aspire to promotion without financial advantages. Local authorities are seen as a second-best option for job seekers, an option reserved mainly for women who have adapted cognitive assets to that organizational climate requirements. Women civil servants would be more resilient than men, their acceptance of the professional framework constraints seems to be more explicit.
