Gender equality is a critical issue in organizations worldwide, and understanding its dynamics within specific contexts is essential for promoting inclusive and equitable workplaces. The study used Acker's Theory of Gendered Organizations to investigate the practice of gender equality in the Government Financial Organization, a significant government institution responsible for shaping economic policies and financial decision-making in the country. The data was collected through interviews with thirty-one participants that were selected through purposeful sampling in 2023. The qualitative method was chosen to capture the experiences and perspectives of employees in the workplace. The discoveries highlight four crucial themes that can either obstruct or facilitate gender equality within institutions: (a) The Role of Gender in Shaping Organizational Functioning, (b) Double Burdens of Female Employees, (c) Unspoken Rules About Gender, and (d) How Things are Done at Work. This study demonstrates the value of using Joan Acker's Gendered Organization theory to understand the gendered nature of the institution as a workplace. It highlights the need for ongoing research to promote gender equality in government organizations.
