Description

This joint event aims to explore the idea of the “gendering of HRM”, reflecting on the past, present and future of the relationship between gender and HRM by focusing on advances, challenges and future directions. Discussions about gender in organizations continue to highlight the ways in which gender and gendered power relations shape and pervade dominant management practices. In particular, HRM policies and practices are seen as central to how gendered dynamics and processes are reproduced and perpetuated in organizations. However, despite the large body of work that focuses on gender and adopts a gender lens to interrogate HRM, claims of gendering of people and practices remains contested as a result of how gender scholarship interrogates the prevalent gender-blind narrative in firms.
