Description

Overview

This interactive session is designed to make students aware of the different approaches to studying gender in the wide area of management, organisation and entrepreneurship studies. Relevant empirical research following different perspectives on integrating the study of gender will be presented and students will have the opportunity to discuss it.

Broadly speaking, research in management tends to follow several different approaches, from quantitative studies interested in analysing the occurrence of well-defined phenomena depending on gender, to in-depth studies investigating organisational practices and routines contributing to shaping gender roles and power relations. The aim is to make students aware of these different perspectives and what they offer to researchers and practitioners.

The sessions features contributions from Colette Henry (Dundalk Institute of Technology) and Helen Lawton Smith (Birkbeck, University of London). At the end of the session, students will be able to understand the importance of exploring the impact of gender on organisational life; appreciate the main perspectives and authors in the field of gender and management; recognise the difference between a positivist approach VS an interpretive and critical approach to the study of gender; recognise that the different approaches to the study of gender in management are all equally important and valuable; reflect on how research can impact the management practice; and learn from practice – or observation – how to run and facilitate scientific debates.
