Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
This paper examines women's organisational experiences and employment outcomes. Women make up approximately half of the labour force; yet their organisational experiences, and employment and career outcomes continue to differ significantly from men's. The focus of this paper is threefold. First, we explore the relationship between women's unpaid and paid work. Second, we explore and problematise women's labour market outcomes in terms of the jobs they occupy, their pay, and their slow advancement to senior managerial levels. Third, we review and critique developments in legislative and organisational policies aimed at redressing these disparate organisational outcomes. The overriding aim of this paper is to critique contemporary research on gendered organisational processes and practices, and to empower students to develop personal and organisational strategies to overcome gendered inequities in employment.

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

The written assessments are designed to develop your understanding of topics beyond what is presented in the lecture. This means that you must reference appropriate material. At the senior undergraduate level, paraphrasing lecture discussions or referencing lecture notes (e.g.,PowerPoint slides) are deemed inappropriate references and typically attract low to failing grades.

As written assessments are online submit, it is essential that you include your name on your work. In addition, if you wish to have feedback, please submit assignments as word documents (PDF files will be marked, but there will be no feedback)

Workload

Edit Workload Content

As a 20 point paper, it is expected that students do approximately 15-20 hours per week, as a summer school programme this time should be doubled. This time has been taken in to account when selecting readings and setting assignments. Thus the time spent on the course should be divided between attending the lectures (six hours per week), with the remaining time dedicated to course readings and assignments. As this is a taught course, it is expected that you attend lectures.
