The following work examines the gender equity and gender equality amongst training staff of local government education authorities in Lagos State, Nigeria.
Organizational building of human capacity development continues to become a major factor and issue of discourse because of the fundamental role it plays in the economic growth and development of countries in the world. It drives the employment of personnel and the movement towards achieving the organizational goals. It is an undeniable fact that organizational goals are achievable because of the type of staff list of an organization. It is therefore imperative to assess how gender equity drives human capacity training in organizations. In this work the Local Government Education Authority (LGEA) of Lagos acts as a field work.
A survey research design was used for the study. The sampled population consisted of 1,314 senior members of staff of twenty LGEAs in Lagos Sate. Five of these LGEAs, which is twenty percent, were selected at random using simple random sampling procedure. Then, stratified sampling procedure was used to select the sample size from the chosen LGEAs. The Bowley’s formula was used to calculate the sample in order to have an empirically backed up data.
The research employed the human capital theory to assess the gender factor among male and female workers and if they are open to the same opportunities in the organizational structure. It was found that gender equity existed among staff of Local Government Education Authority in Lagos State in the aspect of opportunities open to women and men in the area of human capacity training and leadership development, except that the degree of association for women is at a lower percentage compared to men.
It is therefore recommended that the use of eclectic mixture of the equity theory and human capital theory gives not only a better understanding of how equally men and women are treated when given the same opportunities, but also in clearly measuring the extent to which men and women perform on their job towards the achievement of organizational goals given the same training.
