    Non-industrial private forest owners' financial risk taking: Does gender matter?2010In: Scandinavian Journal of Forest Research, ISSN 0282-7581, E-ISSN 1651-1891, Vol. 25, p. 6-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Male and female non-industrial private forest (NIPF) owners differ in inheritance positions, valuations and forest management style. A survey of Swedish NIPF owners found that male and female owners differ in their willingness to take a financial risk. The preliminary analysis, looking only at gender, revealed no difference in the willingness to take risk. Dividing the population according to dependence on income from forestry, however, showed that female NIPF owners increased their willingness to take financial risk when the dependence of income from forestry changed from insubstantial to notable. Females' tolerance towards risk was also significantly higher than males' at the notable level of dependence of forestry income. Having or not having economic yield as one of the most important objectives of ownership seemed to have a little effect on the willingness to take financial risk; however, the results were further strengthened when adding this dimension. A gender perspective was applied to explain identified differences between male and female forest owners concerning their willingness to take financial risks. Whether these differences emanate from real differences in willingness to take risk, or whether they are effects from other differences in male and female forest ownership, is discussed.

    How to Stay Aligned Rather than Becoming Fragmented: The Importance of Knowledge Management in Flexible Working2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Although the fundamental settings for the global business landscape has evolved throughout history in areas such as social, economic, political and demographical trends, companies  are still experiencing the same challenges in performing within the traditional criteria: profitability, customer satisfaction, market share, and innovation. Corporations have to constantly adapt to the changing market (Microsoft, 2005).

    In the current economic climate an increasingly more common change management program, has become flexible working. Flexible working in accordance with Oseland and Webber (2012) implies for many corporations a radical change on the entire organizational structure. What characterizes flexible working is the top management support for employees to be flexible regarding their working hours and working locations as long as they do their job.

    However, the flexible working change management program is not entirely without risks. Working remotely, also known as teleworking or telecommuting, may cause negative social implications among the workforce and could in the long-term lead to cultural cannibalization(Bailey and Kurland, 1999). In order to respond to risk of organizational fragmentation in flexible work systems that are embossed by distance, previous research show the importance  of managing the intellectual assets in order to promote collaboration and communication (Fontaine et al, 2000). Through an on-site case study at Microsoft Sweden, a new adopter of flexible working, this paper aimed to identify the factors that affect knowledge management in a flexible working organization. Recommendations were also to be made on how a flexible working organization should respond to the risk of organizational fragmentation.

    The qualitative study at Microsoft Sweden, including 18 semi-structured interviews and a review of previous research, show that the following factors are driving knowledge management in flexible working companies: distance, performance measurement, enabling technology, the office, the structure in codification and the alignment.

    This research study shows that top managers in flexible working companies must work to spread awareness regarding the importance of knowledge management in flexible working success. Moreover, training must be distributed to employees on the what knowledge should be transferred, how it is done, why it is done, and ultimately top management must foster a culture that care why they are needed to share their knowledge. Mentorship programs are recommended for new recruits. Another important factor is the need for revising the performance measurement process. Improperly defined measurements will lead the organization to succumb to cannibalizing internal competition in flexible working. The research have also shown that flexible working companies need to refine their codification structure and embrace a codification process that actually works as a knowledge sharing tool instead of individual note-taking. Top management can’t allow any lacking in the usage of the flexible working enabling technology. There are an increasing need of team building in flexible working and top management must be sure to invest in developing team spirit and connectedness among the workforce. However, the most important recommendation is that leaders must lead as example on how employees should work in a flexible working organization, and more importantly, how they should share their knowledge. The research suggests that if the recommendations are followed, this will help flexible working organizations stay aligned rather than become fragmented. Future research include, a larger scale study regarding the drivers of knowledge management in flexible working, and an in-depth study regarding each of the produced factors: the distance, the performance measurement, the enabling technology, the office, the structure in codification and the leadership. A more comprehensive action plan on how to respond to each of factors needs to be developed.

    Rental Housing Policy Norms in Stockholm Through A Queer Theoretical Lense2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish Instrument of Governance and Housing Sustention Responsibility state that everyone living in Stockholm County has the right to housing. This thesis deals with norms created by the first-, second-hand rental market and priority housing rules and regulations in the Stockholm County. Using a queer theoretical framework this thesis analyses the situation of young adults and students, elderly, homeless, LGBTQ and abused persons in housing market in relation to “housing for all” policy and suggests possible policy changes in order to make the rental housing market more inclusive.

    Queer theory asserts that subjects are precisely constituted by the existing power structures through socio-political arrangements that are based on assumptions. Urban planning by its nature also uses assumptions therefore it also reproduces accepted truths and risks generalizing heterogeneous social groups’ needs, these generalizations might also create cases that are insensitive to personal needs. According to queer theory identities change over time and individuals can belong to more than one category simultaneously and therefore rental housing market requires having awareness of fluidity.

    This study by using the queer theoretical framework, analyzes the situation of young adults and students, elderly, homeless, LGBTQ and abused persons in Stockholm’s rental housing market by using stories, interviews, policy documents, reports and statistical data to clarify how accepted truths/norms effects the constitution of housing categories, and how these housing categories, for that matter norms that are created by rules and regulations, exclude/include different social groups from the rental housing market.

    In order to fulfil the laws for “housing for all”, there is a need for more affordable rental housing units as well as regulation luxury renovations, supporting research that is related to housing prices and so on. The laws can also be fulfilled by changing in the norm for rental housing tenants; this can be done decreasing the demands for being eligible tenants including requirement on income for regular queue and requirement of study phase of 50 percent for students. For the second-hand rental housing there is a need of a system that minimizes possible discrimination, a database of accessible housing units could help those that need accessibility issue solved and a wider variety with a bigger housing stock for homeless could benefit homeless that want to change their realities. Concerning usage of housing stock in Stockholm, policy changes like “kompis kontrakt” make it possible to use the existing rental housing stock more efficiently.

    The conclusions of this study shows that the requirements set by the rules and regulations on first-hand rental housing excludes individuals that have record of non-payment related to housing, an income that is lower than the total of the monthly rent and 4 675 SEK, and that are not credit worthy. For many including homeless sensitiveness to personal needs are critical. The results show that there is number of shelters in Stockholm County is insufficient and the aid given by the social services to shelters reproduces gender binaries through laws.

    Analyzing Stockholm’s Comprehensive Plan: In Search of an Ecofeminist Future 20502014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report addresses the environmental discourse of the current comprehensive plan of Stockholm, The Walkable City, and in what ways it can be developed following an ecofeminist framework. With a foundation in a critical perspective on current processes of urbanization, ecofeminist theory, and an interest in the potential in utopian thought, this thesis attempts to assist the comprehensive plan in finding alternative ways of approaching the urban development of the city, in search for social and environmental justice through increased citizen participation.

    Ecofeminists argue that economic growth is conditioned by and enforces colonial and patriarchal relations between humans, and between humans and nature. The current global process of urbanization is an integral part in sustaining the economic growth, making cities an important area to address in search of other relations. Sustainable development has been put forth as a way to relieve the negative social and environmental effects of the economic system, and has informed much urban policy-making. Urban policy, such as comprehensive plans, shape the path of urban development. The main strategy of the current comprehensive plan of Stockholm is ”sustainable growth”.

    This thesis analyses the components that make out the strategy of sustainable growth in order to understand why it is problematic. Further, it engages in participatory scenario generation using an ecofeminist framework, to find new ideas and paths for a sustainable urban development in Stockholm.

    The conclusions that are found comprise the positive notion that there are great chances to develop the notion and strategies for sustainability through workshops with stakeholders. While the overall course of development of the scenarios may be too far from our current reality to be easily implemented, there are several suggestions with great potential even in our current context. Furthermore, the results point out important directions in which to develop the plan in a longer perspective, that concern a fundamental restructuring of the political economy along more socially and environmentally sound lines that elevate the interconnectedness of humans and nature. This is a restructuring that makes economic growth according to the current model impossible, but that aims for equality between humans and far-reaching environmental protection. It is also pointed out that the deployment of a multitude of conflicting scenarios in planning would benefit both the urban development and democratic participation.

    Sonification of women in sound and music computing - The sound of female authorship in ICMC, SMC and NIME proceedings2017In: 2017 ICMC/EMW - 43rd International Computer Music Conference and the 6th International Electronic Music Week, Shanghai Conservatory of Music , 2017, p. 233-238Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The primary goal of this study was to approximate the number of female authors in the academic field of Sound and Music Computing. This was done through gender prediction from author names for proceedings from the ICMC, SMC and NIME conferences, and by sonifying these results. Although gender classification by first name can only serve as an estimation of the actual number of female authors in the field, some conclusions could be drawn. The total percentage of author names classified as female was 10.3% for ICMC, 11.9% for SMC and 11.9% for NIME. When merging data from all three conferences for years 2004-2016, it could be concluded that names classified as female ranged from 9.5 to 14.3%. Changes in the ratio of female vs. male authors over time were further illustrated by sonifications, allowing the reader to explore, compare and reflect upon the results by listening to sonic representations of the data. The conclusion that can be drawn from this study is that the field of Sound and Music Computing is still far from being gender-balanced.

    Abstract [de]

    „Die Arktis ist heiß“, bemerkte Schwedens Arktis-Botschafter Gustaf Lind im März 2012, und er meinte damit nicht nur die globale Erwärmung (The Economist 2012). Von einem Dasein als globales Randgebiet ist die Arktis ins Zentrum internationaler Politik und Forschung gerückt. Das sich zurückziehende Polareis hat ungeheure kommerzielle und politische Aktivitäten im Zugang zu bislang unerschlossenen Erz- und Öllagerstätten, Fischgründen sowie Wald- und Wildbeständen freigesetzt. Hoffnungen auf Ressourcen, neue Transport- und Handelswege und nicht zuletzt der wachsende Tourismus haben die Arktis zu einem geopolitisch umkämpften Terrain werden lassen. Neben den arktischen Bewohner_innen und den selbst ernannten Arktisstaaten (darunter auch Schweden) umfasst die zunehmende Zahl sogenannter ‚Stakeholder‘ auch geographisch ferne Staaten wie China, Indien und Japan, supranationale Zusammenschlüsse wie die Europäische Union, eine Vielzahl von Nichtregierungsorganisationen (NGOs), wissenschaftlicher Institutionen sowie lokaler und multinationaler Unternehmen, die ihre Ansprüche mit Blick auf globale Sicherheitsfragen zu legitimieren suchen: militärische Sicherheit, Energiesicherheit und Umweltsicherheit.

    What is Gender in Organizations?2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent decades different constructionist approaches, frequently gathered under the label of ‘doing gender’, have become influential in Scandinavian gender research (Widerberg 2007). In this text we focus on just what ‘doing gender’ in organisations is seen to be. What is gender and how can it be looked at with doing gender as the point of departure? Our initial inquiry involves taking a look at what the suggested definition of doing gender is in research on gender in organisations. We look at the criticism directed towards doing gender and how this has been treated. After going through the research on doing gender, we then outline our view of gender in organisations. We argue in favour of keeping a “divided eye” on how actors do gender via an analytical look at ‘where they have been’ and ‘where they are heading’, in relation to context and practices, and in this way being able to focus on the process of how gender is done. Following this we present some methodological implications arising from our view on gender with regard to two ongoing research projects on gender and leadership in two different organisational contexts. Finally, we give a summary of our ways of reasoning along with one or two observations on our view of gender and approaches to studying organisations.

    Varför inte fler?: Kvinnliga elever på gymnasieskolans tekniska program - En undersökning kring gymnasievalet2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The report is based on both a survey and a literature study. The purpose is to highlight the reasons why girls and women exclude technology as such and, in particular, why they opt it out in the upper secondary school selection process. What do the female students consider to be the main reasons affecting them in their selection and discontinuation of the technology programs?

    This study searches for the pupil perspective of upper secondary school students. This gives a deviating result as opposed to studies that are conducted with pupiles in lower grades.

    The survey was conducted at a major secondary school in one of Sweden's metropolitan regions. The method of the survey was interviews and a web questionnaire addressing female students on the technology program and the science program as well as teachers who teach them both. The study shows that the

    existence of the softer specializations of the technology program (such as design and production development), open-houses and the parents' opinion weighed heavily in their decision process.

    In close collaboration with the literature, these areas joined up to some conciliatory related fields.

    Hierarchical structures in cultural codes for the various programs were prominent.

    The interpretation of the term technical interest was also crucial as well as substantial factors in upper level lower secondary school technical education. Even the parents' direct –as well as indirect opinions are important. The survey shows that parents' education and their existing career choices have strong connection with female students' choices for their future education.

    Conclusion could be made that possible ways to avoid segregated upper secondary school program choices could include setting up an increased number of "soft" specializations in the technology program, active work to attract female students during technology programs’ open-houses and speeding up change of the technology program cultural codes by, among other things, emphasizing the importance of both established and new female role-models in the technology world.

    Children's toy collections in Sweden: A less gender-typed country?2005In: Sex Roles, ISSN 0360-0025, E-ISSN 1573-2762, Vol. 52, no 1-2, p. 93-102Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to describe and analyze differences between girls' and boys' toy collections in a country that strongly emphasizes gender equality (Sweden). The study was based on the assumptions that toy collections reflect social values in the society where they are found and that Sweden has less gendered values than do many other countries. The toy collections of 152 3- and 5-year old Swedish children were inventoried, and the results were analyzed and discussed in relation to previous research on children's toy collections and toy preferences in North America and Western Europe. The Swedish toy collections were found to be gender-typed in ways similar to those reported in previous research in other countries.

    Jag tänker aldrig på mig själv som kvinnlig chef: Kvinnor som norm för ledarskap i kvinnodominerade organisationer2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kvinnor som är chefer i organisationer med en majoritet kvinnor både bland cheferna och samtliga anställda är i fokus i den här studien. Feministisk forskning om kvinnor på ledande positioner har i stor utsträckning studerat kvinnors villkor i mansdominerade organisationer. Flera studier undersöker hur minoritetssituationen påverkar kvinnors erfarenheter. Kanter (1977) visar hur kvinnliga chefers handlingsutrymme kringskärs av synlighet, stereotypa föreställningar om kvinnor, och informell isolering. Kvinnor i minoritetssituationer tenderar även att konstrueras som mindre kompetenta än sina manliga kollegor (Ely 1995, Wahl 1996, Holgersson 2003).

    Det här pappret undersöker kvinnors handlingsutrymme och möjlighet att utgöra norm i organisationen när de befinner sig i majoritet på maktpositioner. Hur konstrueras ledarskap och kön av cheferna? Kan kvinnor utgöra norm för ledarskap?

    Abstract [en]

    Feminist organizational research on women in leadership positions has largely focused on women managers, and their terms in male dominated work environments. The gender structuring in these organizations correspond with the gender order in society with male domination on positions of power and the majority of women in positions with less power. This study explores how the majority position affects women leaders workplace experiences and sense of belongingness in organizations. It also examines how women managers negotiate meanings of gender and leadership when they find themselves in majority at positions of power. Results suggest that the majority position opens up various ways of challenging and transforming prevailing male constructions of leadership. The managers do not have to relate to pre existing notions of leadership. Women constitute the norm in the organization in the sense that it is the things they do at work that constitutes leadership. They enjoy having power to shape the organization and they are constructed as competent managers. Moreover, they do not perceive themselves as part of a gendered category as managers. At the same time however, women’s subordination in gender power relations in society affects the social constructions of gender identity. Men in the organization are highly valued and the women managers strive to increase their numbers.

    Male Dominance in Positions of Power2004Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, as in many other countries, most managers are men. In 1993 the Swedish government commissioned an inquiry[1]in order to find out to what extent men dominated management positions in Swedish business life at the time. The study also focused on measures taken in order to increase the proportion of women at the top. The empirical material consisted of an extensive survey among organizations and interviews with people that worked with the issue of increasing women at executive levels (in the study referred to as change agents) (Höök 1995, Wahl 1995). Descriptions given by these agents supplemented the statistics from the survey and enhanced the picture of the work for change, which despite, or because of, men’s dominance at management level, still went on in many organizations. Nine years later a follow up inquiry[2]was commissioned in order to once again measure the distribution of women and men at different organizational levels and the existence of work for change (see Regnö 2003a, 2003b). Once again, the change agents were interviewed (see Höök & Wahl 2003) in order to receive up-to-date descriptions of the work for change carried out by them, and their reflections on how the work has developed since the previous inquiry was carried through. In both government inquiries, the empirical findings were interpreted and discussed in relation to existing research on organization and gender.

    The Intersection of Feminist Research, Media, Politics, and Business in Sweden2004Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, as in many other countries, most managers are men. In 1993 the Swedish government commissioned an inquiry[1]in order to find out to what extent men dominated management positions in Swedish business life at the time. Nine years later a follow up inquiry[2]was commissioned in order to once again measure the distribution of women and men at different organizational levels and the existence of work for change (see Regnö 2003a, 2003b). This paper is based both on the findings from the 2003 inquiry “Male Dominance in Transition. On Management Teams and Boards” (SOU 2003:16) and also on the work process, namely the support and resistance which faced the research team in their work with the inquiry. In the first section of the paper, the empirical findings from the survey (Regnö 2003a, 2003b) and interviews with change agents (Höök & Wahl 2003) will be presented. Then, the more theoretical discussions following the themes of women executives in a historical perspective (Svanström 2003), women and corporate boards (Karlsson Stider 2003), management and gender (Holgersson 2003a), young managers (Linghag 2003), and work for change (Höök 2003) will be summarized. The paper ends with a discussion on the work process and how actors from different areas of society, media, politics and business, intervened.

    The Reproduction and Change of Male Dominance in Positions of Power2003Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, as in many other countries, most managers are men. In 1993 the Swedish government commissioned an inquiry2in order to find out to what extent men dominated management positions in Swedish business life at the time. The study also focused on measures taken in order to increase the proportion of women at the top. The empirical material consisted of an extensive survey among organizations and interviews with people that worked with the issue of increasing women at executive levels (in the study referred to as change agents) (Höök 1995, Wahl 1995). Descriptions given by these agents supplemented the statistics from the survey and enhanced the picture of the work for change, which despite, or because of, men’s dominance at management level, still went on in many organizations. Nine years later a follow up inquiry3was commissioned in order to once again measure the distribution of women and men at different organizational levels and the existence of work for change (see Regnö 2003a, 2003b). Once again, the change agents were interviewed (see Höök & Wahl 2003) in order to receive up-to-date descriptions of the work for change carried out by them, and their reflections on how the work has developed since the previous inquiry was carried through. In both government inquiries, the empirical findings were interpreted and discussed in relation to existing research on organization and gender. This paper is based on the findings from the 2003 inquiry “Male Dominance in Transition. On Management Teams and Boards” (SOU 2003:16). In the first section of the paper, the empirical findings from the survey (Regnö 2003a, 2003b) and interviews with change agents (Höök & Wahl 2003) will be presented. Then, the more theoretical discussions following the themes of women executives in a historical perspective (Svanström 2003), women and corporate boards (Karlsson Stider 2003), management and gender (Holgersson 2003a), young managers (Linghag 2003), and work for change (Höök 2003) will be summarized. The paper ends with a discussion drawing on the results of the different chapters.

    Feminist Futures of Spatial Practice: Materialisms, Activisms, Dialogues, Pedagogies, Projections2017Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Architecture and the arts have long been on the forefront of socio-spatial struggles, in which equality, access, representation and expression are at stake in our cities, communities and everyday lives. Feminist spatial practices contribute substantially to new forms of activism, expanding dialogues, engaging materialisms, transforming pedagogies, and projecting alternatives. Feminist Futures of Spatial Practice traces practical tools and theoretical dimensions, as well as temporalities, emergence, histories, events, durations – and futures – of feminist practices. Authors include international practitioners, researchers, and educators, from architecture, the arts, art history, curating, cultural heritage studies, environmental sciences, futures studies, film, visual communication, design and design theory, queer, intersectional and gender studies, political sciences, sociology, and urban planning. Established as well as emerging voices write critically from within their institutions, professions, and their activist, political and personal practices. Feminist Futures of Spatial Practice deepens and broadens how we can understand and engage with different genders, bodies and peoples, diverse voices and forms of expression, alternative norms and ways of living together.

    "All of my bosses have been men" - on gender structures in the real-estate industry2013In: Property Management, ISSN 0263-7472, E-ISSN 1758-731X, Vol. 31, no 5, p. 420-434Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of the paper is to create an understanding of the gender structure in the real-estate industry in Sweden. Interviews were made with younger female and male graduates. The purpose is to distinguish how these younger graduates working in the industry react to the gender structure. Design/methodology/approach: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 12 graduate younger women and men working in the real-estate industry in Sweden. As an input to the interviews a mapping of the gender structure was conducted, using annual reports of commercial real-estate companies and public housing companies in Sweden. Findings: The paper provides empirical insights that there were not any greater differences in the gender structure in Sweden, between 2001 and 2008 and none of the respondents were surprised. The symbols of men and the hegemonic masculinity - men more often holding leading and technical positions while women more often hold supporting positions in the industry - are important to understand the gender structure. In the industry the hegemonic engineering masculinity is also apparent. Research limitations/implications: The limitation of the paper might be the time period of the mapping; a longer time period might have shown a change in the structure and the amount of young female and male graduates interviewed. Practical implications: The paper includes implication for the development of the gender structure - awareness is the first step, in order to retain talented women and men. Originality/value: The paper fulfils an identified need to study the gender structure of the real-estate industry.

    CHIversity: Implications for equality, diversity, and inclusion campaigns2018In: Proceeding CHI EA '18 Extended Abstracts of the 2018 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018, article id alt03Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this alt.chi paper, we reflect on #CHIversity; a grassroots campaign highlighting feminist issues related to diversity and inclusion at CHI2017, and in HCI more widely. #CHIversity was operationalised through a number of activities including: collaborative cross-stitch and ‘zine’ making events; the development of a ‘Feminist CHI Programme’; and the use of a Twitter hashtag ‘#CHIversity’. These events granted insight into how diversity discourses are approached within the CHI community. From these recognitions we provide examples of how diversity and inclusion can be promoted at future SIGCHI events. These include fostering connections between attendees, discussing ‘polarizing’ research in a conservative political climate, and encouraging contributions to the growing body of HCI literature addressing feminisms and related subjects. Finally, we suggest how these approaches and benefits can translate to HCI events extending beyond CHI, where exclusion may routinely go undetected.

    Play as transgression: An ethnographic approach to queer game cultures2009In: Breaking New Ground: Innovation in Games, Play, Practice and Theory - Proceedings of DiGRA 2009, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is based on an ongoing ethnography of a GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) guild in the MMOG World of Warcraft. Drawing on queer/feminist theory, the argument concentrates on sexuality as resource for 'transgressive play'. The notion of transgressive play is usually taken to mean play against the 'ideal' or 'implied' player of the game, of playing the game in ways not anticipated by design. For queer gamers, sexuality comes into play in ways that make visible the cultural norms of the ideal player-a player who is at least symbolically male and straight. This ethnographic work indicates that there are queer uses of game spaces that in significant ways make visible-and play around with-norms and expectations that are shaping what online game communities are, and what they could be.

    Inflating and down playing strengths and weaknesses-Practicing gender in the evaluation of potential managers and partners2016In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 20-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we contribute to the debate on gender in evaluation decisions and the male norm in management by examining how the skills and experience of women and men are described and interpreted in the evaluation of candidates' potential for future positions in a Swedish bank and a Dutch professional services firm. By drawing on Martin's concept of practicing gender, we show how strengths and weaknesses are discursively constructed in real time and space. We identify four different and subtle patterns of practicing gender in the evaluation of men and women in which men's strengths are inflated and their weaknesses downplayed, while women's strengths are downplayed and weaknesses inflated. Although women are included in the process and seen as competent, their potential is - in general limited to lower managerial levels. Moreover, we examine the entanglement of gender and age. We discuss how these patterns of practicing gender can help us understand how gender and other inequalities are reproduced in seemingly gender egalitarian contexts where women and men are considered for higher positions.

    Från ord till handling: Forskningsbaserad utveckling av jämställdhetsarbete vid teknisk fakultet2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Det övergripande syftet med projektet har varit att - utveckla fallbeskrivningar för lärande genom en analys av hur det formella och informella jämställdhetsarbetet vid KTH är organiserat och på vilka arenor detta arbete utövas i praktiken, - utifrån fallbeskrivningar iscensätta lärandeprocesser i form av benchlearning om jämställdhetsarbete mellan de tekniska högskolorna i Sverige.

    En central del i metodansatsen är att jämställdhetsarbetets innehåll och form är kontextberoende. Det är inte möjligt att finna en standard för hur jämställdhetsarbete inom högskolan ska bedrivas, utan här krävs ett utvecklingsarbete som tar sin utgångspunkt i de enskilda organisationernas förutsättningar och behov.Projektet delas in i en intern och en extern fas. Den interna fasen består av en lärprocess om KTH:s eget jämställdhetsarbete och är en metodologisk förutsättning för att kunna utveckla benchlearning i den externa fasen.

    I projektets externa fas är fokus på att iscensätta ett lärande i form av benchlearning mellan de medverkande organisationerna, utifrån de lärande exempel som beskrivs i rapporten. Målsättningen är att utveckla ett bestående nätverk för lärande och erfarenhetsutbyte mellan de tekniska högskolorna, där empiri från de egna organisationerna kan ligga till grund.

    The Second Wave of Integration - Methods for Teaching Gender Theories in Business Schools2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents two separate parts of a project aiming at integrating gender theory in organization and management courses; teambuilding and visual methods. Teambuilding theories lack descriptions and interpretations on gendered processes. Taking this identified problem as a point of departure, we developed an exercise about gender in teambuilding. The aim was to encourage students to develop their ability to understand and analyze group processes as gendered, i.e. with the help from theories on organization and gender. Visual methods informed by gender theory may contribute to a critical view on the visual landscape of our society and its organizations. Furthermore, through visual methods students may become photographic subjects themselves and thus present alternative ways of visual representation.

    Designing Dam Safeties: Perspectives on large scale dams within the intra-actions of technology, nature and human decision making2013In: International Commission of Large Dams, ICOLD, Seattle, 2013: International Symposium, Seattle: ICOLD , 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Analyzing the intra-actions between the actors involved, this paper presents results from interviews and participatory observations with local authorities, local inhabitants, power companies representatives as well as dam operators. We argue that the Swedish model for dam safety currently is suffering from a major deficiency as the expertise and understanding of the technical constructions remain among the dam owners and that the societal authority in charge of supervising the dam owners work have no capability of achieving the same level of understanding and thus to take informed and relevant decisions. Furthermore we argue that the lack of technical understanding of dams and hydropower outside of the dam sector has become a huge threat to dam safety as state representatives and political decision makers currently allow and even encourage mining exploitation both next to high risk classified hydropower dams and even within existing hydropower reservoirs.

    We argue that the actual challenge to safeguard an increased dam safety is by bridging the gap between the multitude of different actors– engineers/operators, users, political decision makers -   in order to generate new understandings and new methodologies to deal with risk, safety and security. It is necessary to bridge the gaps between the sectors and actors involved, and that this should be done through investment in close collaboration between the dam sector and engineering research on the one hand and social sciences and humanities on the other – to ensure understandings of political decision making as well as of technical artifacts and water flows.

    The geographical focus is on two rivers – the Ume River and the Lule River in the north of Sweden. Both rivers are of major importance for national production of electricity, and the rivers are water suppliers for a large amount of inhabitants.
