Academic Calendar 2017/2018 - Gender and Diversity in Organizations
ORGS 3307 Gender and Diversity in Organizations
Hours:Three hours of lecture per week for one term.
Description:This course examines the effects gender and diversity have on the attitudes, behaviours, and treatment of individuals in organizations. In addition, organizational responses to gender and diversity issues are addressed. Women represent the largest workplace minority and the majority of diversity research has examined women's organizational experiences. By focusing on the growing participation of women in organizations, particularly women in management, the course explores the impact of changing demographics and patterns of workforce participation on organizations and personal well-being. The course also examines the effects that other, less well studied forms of diversity, including age, race, sexual orientation, and disability, have on individuals and their organizations. This course may be credited towards Gender Equality and Social Justice.
