Gender, Identity and the Culture of Organizations offers insights into the ways in which organizations operate as spaces in which minds are gendered and men and women constructed. This edited collection brings together four powerful themes that have developed within the field of organizational analysis over the past two decades: organizational culture; the gendering of organizations; post-modernism and organizational analysis; and critical approaches to management. It provides a range of essays from distinguished writers from a range of countries, including UK USA, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands and Sweden, exploring innovative methods for the critical theorizing of organizational cultures. In particular, the book reflects the growing interest in the impact of organizational identity formation and its implications for individuals and organizational outcomes in terms of gender. In additional to these theoretical contributions, the book aims at introducing research designs, methods and methodologies by which the complex interrelationships between gender, identity and the culture of organizations can be explored.
