Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper explores women's contributions to and involvement in today's organisations. The aim of the paper is to develop student abilities to analyse the complex gendered dynamics that affect women's location in organisations, to critique current strategies designed to enhance women's careers, and to consider alternative strategies where appropriate. The paper, which highlights the location of women in the labour market, reviews the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women and the ensuing legislative and organisational responses designed to achieve employment equality. In addition, we explore women's career patterns and leadership styles, and their location in and contribution to the global economy. The emphasis in the paper is on empowering students to develop their own careers and to prepare them as managers to design responsive strategies that tap in to the talents and skills of their employees, irrespective of their gender.

Paper Structure

This is a taught paper involving a combination of lectures (in the first half of semester) and student-led seminar presentations (in the second half of semester). The class is interactive and thus, lecture attendance will require some preparation. The preparation tasks will be discussed in lectures. There are a small number of readings listed for each week. These are to be read by all students. In addition, you will need to read self-sourced material for your essays and seminar presentation. There is also a combination of individual work (e.g., essay assignments) and group work (e.g., seminar presentation).
