‘Gender and Class at Work’

2nd of March 2016

Garden Room, Park House

University of Birmingham

The Enterprise and Diversity Research Cluster at the Birmingham Business School is holding this ‘Gender and Class at Work’ workshop in collaboration with the ISBE Gender and Enterprise Network.  The aim of this event is to place class at the centre of our understandings of gender and work, and analyse its intersections with other key socio-cultural relations.  This interest follows the increasing awareness that inequalities related to class have been overlooked in the study of work, whilst other forms of social division such as gender or ethnicity have gained much more attention in the last decades. The aim of this workshop is to reflect upon how different class processes impact on gender structures, role and identities in large organisations or as entrepreneurs. This event will provide the space to discuss the sort of challenges the field is grappling with and why they are important. The keynote and discussion sessions will facilitate reflecting upon theoretical, conceptual and methodological approaches to research gendered and classed experiences of work and enterprise.

Attendance to the event is free but registration is required. Please send an email to Sophie Sinclair to confirm your attendance and dietary requirements.
