Research background: Today’s dynamic times in era of globalization bring change to all areas of business; there is increasing pressure to increase the competitiveness of companies and thus increase the requirements for management. Despite current trends, emancipation and globalization, the issue of gender equality and gender policy is still relevant and needs to be addressed. New management disciplines include diversity management. It focuses on the different social and cultural identities of employees and also on eliminating discrimination and inequality in the organization. Diversity management has later developed into a relatively separate discipline - gender relations management. Label recognition of the organization as “gender-integrated” means that organizational culture and processes are based on the recognition and promotion of gender equality. Gender equality is associated with the concept of equal opportunities at work and actual legislation in the field of labour protection.
