Short content

Social division of work and organisational life are designed in the context of socially defined female and male roles. Gender represents a key factor of social inclusion/exclusion in the labour markets, of vertical and horizontal professional mobility, and of distribution of unpaid/informal work. Gendered relations that are reproduced in organizational life are based on explicit and implicit consideration of gendered division of work; that enables reproduction of standpoints, symbols and actions based on gender stereotypes and gender hierarchy. Analysis of the interplay of gender and work helps in understanding of differences in forms of work (paid and unpaid work), activities (masculinised/feminised) and spheres of life (private/public).
