Addressing the disaster research workforce, the paper calls for an inward gaze into the gender dynamics within disaster research, and highlights the dynamics of inequality within the disaster research community as opposed to simply reviewing studies on gender issues in disaster contexts. The main argument of the article states that while there has been an increase in attention of the gendered dimensions or humanitarian crises, little exists on the gendered aspects within disaster-research teams and organisations in addition to data on gender presence and gender bias. To tackle this, the article proposes a systematic plan to collect gender data through the adoption of a framework to build gender equality plans (GEPs).
