GIM SIG: BAM2011 Track Report

The ‘gender and management’ track continues to go from strength to strength and, as in previous years, was very well attended at the conference. We heard a range of interesting papers from established academics as well as doctoral students.

The 21 papers covered a wide variety of topics including: career issues, women on boards, flexible working, female expatriates, homophilous relationships, intersectionality, and management development issues. The sessions were very interactive, generating interesting discussions and providing supportive feedback for presenters.

The Best Paper Award for the track was presented to Doyin Atewologun for a paper entitled: ‘Making sense of difference: the intersectional identity work of senior black and Asian men and women’.

The Best Developmental Paper Award was presented to Susan Shortland for her paper ‘Drilling through gender stereotypes: improving prospects for female expatriation in oil and gas exploration and production?’ Thanks go to Emerald for sponsoring these prizes and the AGM.
