Context: Gender and management research is challenging, concerned with deeply embedded social issues and structural inequalities. Conducted in a wide range of geographical and organisational contexts and approached from individual, organisational and social levels of analysis, gender and management scholars therefore require methods that can get under the surface of the everyday. While the workshop is focused on gender, we anticipate that discussions will cover the significance of issues of intersectionality when researching social injustice.
Aim: Within this context, the aim of this workshop is twofold. First to examine critically how we conceptualise gender, and second to discuss diverse methods for researching it.
• To discover a range of research methods available to gender and management scholars.
• To better understand gender as a complex, dynamic and socially constructed phenomenon.
• To better understand how and where to apply particular research methods when examining gender and social injustice issues within the field of management and organisation studies
• To identify areas of gender and management research that could benefit from the application of diverse research methods
• To identify the potential for further gender and management research methods workshops
