Examine the evolving roles and experiences of women and men in the global workplace. In the Fifth Edition of Women and Men in Management, author Gary N. Powell provides a comprehensive survey and review of the literature on gender and organizations. This new edition is more intersectional than ever with expanded coverage of how race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identify and expression, and generational differences intersect with gender in the workplace. Packed with the latest statistics, research, and examples, the text explores important issues like the gender pay gap, stereotypes and biases, sexual harassment in the workplace, work-life balance, and practical strategies for creating inclusive cultures. New to this Edition Includes references to nearly 1,000 sources to reflect the growing of research since the last edition from 2010. Includes the latest research and statistics on a wide range of important issues like labor force participation, educational attainment, occupational attainment, and more. Public events and trends since the last edition, such as increased public attention to rampant sexual harassment by corporate executives, have been incorporated. New attention is devoted to issues such as the effect of social media on gender socialization and how tech companies lose women of color during the hiring process.
