Gender in the Workplace (2nd ed.)

A Case Study Approach

Jacqueline DeLaat,

Gender in the Workplace: A Case Study Approach
 
 

This brief collection of cases is designed to help students and employees gain a hands-on understanding of gender issues in the workplace and to provide the necessary tools to handle those issues. Based on actual legal cases, nationally reported incidents, and personal interviews, the case studies in Gender in the Workplace address the range and types of gender issues found in the workplace. Completely revised and updated, this Second Edition provides a more international dimension to reinforce the varying impact of different cultures on gender issues.

New to the Second Edition:

  • Develops critical thinking skills: A new "Critical Issues" section introduces students to cutting-edge thinking and thought-provoking research.
  • Explores gender issues in a wide variety of organizations and in many cultures: Two new cases set outside the United States discuss how cultural settings can change the form of problems and the strategies for addressing them.
  • Offers many new concrete examples of gender issues that arise in the workplace: New cases examine harassment in the military and "glass ceiling" issues as well as an updated look at gender stereotypes, promotion and benefits, career development, balancing work and family, sexual harassment, and much more!
