International Conference on Gender and Management

International Conference on Gender and Management bhubaneswar live

BIMTECH Bhubanewar along with Institute of Public Enterprise,Hyderabad is gearing up for a 2 day International Conference on 5th & 6th January, 2017 on Gender and Management, with BIMTECH’s International partner University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, Europe.

Conference Overview

Management and managing are characteristically gendered in many respects. Over the last thirty years, there has been a significant growth of studies on gender relations in organisations in general and management in particular. This applies in both empirical research and theoretical analyses.

The role of gender in organisations and management is now recognised as an important area of discussion and further research. This is reflected in the form of publications in national and international journals, in various programmes, in the activities of research groups, and world-wide conferences and symposiums.

Nevertheless, the field of activity is still somewhat precarious as the majority of mainstream work on organisations and management has no gender analysis whatsoever or if it does, it is in its nascent stage, simplistic and not well defined. In business schools and university departments, the position of gender-explicit work is far below than the established stream of studies and thoughts.

Furthermore, many of the initiatives in this direction and the insights that have been achieved around research on gender and management are from satisfying and needs serious attention.  In this process of massive global change, the need of the hour is to respond, understand and appreciate the role of women in the management industry with the aim of developing the their skills, capabilities and bringing a gender diversity workplace sans discrimination.

Conference Objectives

The conference aims to bring together leading academicians, researchers, industry experts, regulatory authorities, research scholars from India and abroad to share their experiences and research findings on the ways and methods to make gender related issues and challenges with regard to organization ad management.
