This paper addresses 'gender disparity' in organisation. Using a multinational organisation, as a basis for data elicitation, the empirical analysis explores its human resource utilisation, on basis of gender, to assess parity of treatment. The research employs a combination of qualitative and quantitative data elicitation techniques. All comparative tables are chisquared, with probability taken at 'p<0.05'. The empirical data suggests that management, through its discriminatory practices, fail to adequately utilise its human resource, negatively affecting gender relationships and worker commitment, jeopardising overall organisational effectiveness.


Keywords: Gender disparity, human resource utilisation, committee membership, marketing intelligence, worker commitment, resonation
