Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics hosts a research seminar “International Research seminar: Gender in Male-Dominated Organizational Contexts”. The seminar is organized in collaboration by WeAll Consortium, a project funded by the Strategic Research Council (SRC) at the Academy of Finland and Academy of Finland Postdoctoral Researcher Marke Kivijärvi. The seminar is funded by The Foundation for Economic Education, Finland. The seminar will be organized around two keynote presentations and a panel discussion.
In this seminar, we explore women’s careers, and their expeirencs of working in male-dominated organizational contexts. The seminar also addresses how masculinity has been constructed and naturalized, and what kind of requirements masculinity sets for women and their identity. Finally, the seminar examines ways to disrupt the prevailing gender order and how to increase equality.
The seminar is free of charge and fits ~50 people.
