Gender in international business and management
Despite more than fifty years of research into gender and the working world, the topic is still a relatively neglected area in cross-cultural management. The concept of gender is under-represented in mainstream management literature. When it does appear, it is frequently compartmentalised, such that it becomes difficult to see the connections between gender and wider issues in research and practice in cross-cultural management. Furthermore, the implicit gendering of concepts of management, with the concept of the manager being implicitly male unless stated otherwise, and of management research, frequently goes unaddressed.
With this ebook, we are seeking to develop the body of literature on the role of gender in managing across cultures, as well as the role of cross-cultural issues on women’s business decisions and leadership styles: how management work is gendered, how gender affects, and is negotiated within, cross-cultural interactions, and how gender inspires conflicts and creative synergies in an international business context.
