Women and Men in the Workplace

Course Description

This course addresses the macro and micro effects of gender in the workplace, from the complicated reasons for the lack of representation of women in senior leadership across sectors to the interpersonal dynamics of women and men working together. The landscape for business has changed dramatically over the last few decades, and with a shift towards a more global workforce, understanding the intersection of work dynamics and gender is critical.

In addition, this course will explore the important intersections between gender and other demographic characteristics, such as race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, and age. Finally, the course will examine the relationship between organizational culture and employee experiences in order to uncover strategies and examples of how to create more diverse and inclusive work environments.
