    Recruiting Managing Directors: Doing Homosociality2013In: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 20, no 4, p. 454-466Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines homosociality in the context of top management recruitment in Sweden, drawing on interviews with chairmen of the board and three recruitments of managing directors. The analysis suggests that homosociality is done through two main practices: (re)defining competence and doing hierarchy, resulting in a preference for certain men and the exclusion of women. It is argued that the preference of men can be understood as an unreflexive practice, which can explain why many Swedish male managers are aware of the adverse conditions women face and claim to be pro-equality but continue to recruit men for management positions. In light of this, it is also argued that homosociality and gender discrimination can be seen as two sides of the same coin.

    Gender, Management and Market Discourse: The Case of Gender Quotas in the Swedish and Finnish Media2009In: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 501-521Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we present a comparative study of media texts in Sweden and Finland, two societies traditionally viewed as Nordic welfare states. Focusing on the controversial question of introducing gender-based quotas on the boards of companies, we analyse how representations of gender and management are affected in Sweden and Finland by contemporary market discourse. We argue that market discourse takes different forms in the two societal contexts and that the space for questioning and criticizing it from a gender equality perspective remains different. Our analysis thus complements recent contributions stressing that both societal particularities and transnational processes must be considered in studies of gender and management (Calas and Smircich, 2006).

    Gender and national identity constructions in the cross-border merger context2005In: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 12, no 3, p. 217-241Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we explore ways in which vertical gender inequality is accomplished in discourse in the context of a recent chain of cross-border mergers and acquisitions that resulted in the formation of a multinational Nordic company. We analyse social interactions of 'doing' gender in interviews with male senior executives from Denmark, Finland and Sweden. We argue that their explanations for the absence of women in the top echelons of the company serve to distance vertical gender inequality. The main contribution of the article is an analysis of how national identities are discursively (re)constructed in such distancing. New insights are offered to studying gender in multinationals with a cross-cultural team of researchers. Our study sheds light on how gender intersects with nationality in shaping the multinational organization and the identities of male executives in globalizing business.
