Module code: BUS327
Pre-requisite: BUS305 Managing Diversity
Module organiser: Dr Tessa Wright
This module examines how gender impacts on management and leadership roles, resulting in men and women’s differential participation in senior positions in the private and public sectors and in different national contexts. It considers theoretical explanations and empirical evidence concerning the gendered, ethnicised and sexualised assumptions underlying perceptions of management style; changing notions of work-life balance; occupational segregation; access to networking and professional development opportunities. The module critically examines strategies for addressing gender imbalance in management and leadership and debates contemporary policy proposals.
