Abstract: To further advance the understanding of how gender norms are performed in practice within organisations, this article reviews the main conceptualisations of 'practice' and of 'gender-as-practice' in the organisational literature. Drawing from recent work, it proceeds to explore the potential of using a gender-as-practice approach to observe how gender might be undone via microemancipation and resistance. Finally, it addresses some methodological implications that are raised by the adoption of such an approach, among which remains the difficulty of articulating practices and the challenge of operationalising 'doing gender'.
