Gendering Organizational Analysis

Edited by:

June 1992 | 309 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
"This book offers some of the most forward-looking work available on the topics of gendered organizations and the interrelationship of gender and race. . . . In Gendering Organizational Analysis, one may get a glimpse of the broader domain of gender in organizations, an area infrequently reflected in research conducted in the United States. . . . Gendering Organizational Analysis is not simply applicable to the organizations of others. It also offers insight on the gendering of the institutions within which knowledge is produced." --Academy of Management Review "Gendering Organizational Analysis makes a distinct contribution. . . . The collection succeeds in demonstrating 'that gender makes an overwhelming difference to organizational reality'. . . . Gendering Organizational Analysis is most useful for its accessibility. I will use this book to teach undergraduates in organizational studies. . . . It would also be a useful addition to courses emphasizing the interdisciplinary contributions of gender and feminist studies." --Contemporary Sociology What impact do gender issues have on organizational structure and performance? Why should gender matter in organizational settings? And, how can we better understand organizations through a recognition of women's roles within them? In Gendering Organizational Analysis, the editors approach these questions from a variety of perspectives--structural and post-structural, social, psychological, interactionist, radical, and post-modernist. Contributors examine the core issue of how race and ethnicity are intertwined with gender in organizational settings and outline the concrete differences this issue makes in male-dominated work settings. They propose that numerous errors have been made in interpreting organizational operations because traditional approaches to organizational theory are ethnic- and gender-blind. Bringing together the top thinkers and writers on this crucial topic, Gendering Organizational Analysis will interest students and professionals in management, organizational studies, women's studies, sociology, and public administration.
