Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

The purpose of this course is three-fold: 1) to examine literature on women in management, leadership and entrepreneurship 2) to develop the ability to use different feminist perspectives to evaluate research on gender in organizations and 3) to apply both traditional research on gender and feminist perspectives to problems facing organizations. We will first review the literature on women in management, leadership, and entrepreneurship. We will then cover a blend of classic and contemporary feminist perspectives on organizations to understand the evolution of feminist thought in the field of OB and to analyze how both traditional and feminist approaches can inform research and practice. The major goals of this course are to provide students with 1) an overview of gender research in the field of organizational behavior 2) to increase their understanding of how different feminist perspectives can inform research and practice 3) to support them in generating new questions, models and/or frameworks that can be used by organizations.
