Overview

This brief collection of cases is designed to help students and employees gain a hands-on understanding of gender issues in the workplace and to provide the necessary tools to handle those issues. Based on actual legal cases, nationally reported incidents, and personal interviews, the case studies in Gender in the Workplace address the range and types of gender issues found in working enviroments. Completely revised and updated, this Second Edition provides a more international dimension to reinforce the varying impact of different cultures on gender issues.

New to the Second Edition: Develops critical thinking skills: A new "Critical Issues" section introduces students to cutting-edge thinking and thought-provoking research. Explores gender issues in a wide variety of organizations and in many cultures: Two new cases set outside the United States how cultural settings can change the form of problems and the strategies for addressing them. Offers many new concrete examples of gender issues that arise in the workplace: New cases examine harassment in the military and "glass ceiling" issues as well as an updated look at gender stereotypes, promotion and benefits, career development, balancing work and family sexual harassment, and much more.

Instructor's Resources: This helpful CD offers instructor notes, case overviews, learning objectives, teaching recommendations, and discussion questions for each chapter. Intended Audience: This text is intended as a supplement for courses in Management, Human Resources, Public Administration, Gender Studies, Industrial Psychology, Social Psychology, and Sociology of Work.

Meet the Author

Jacqueline De Laat is Mc Coy Professor of political science at Marietta College in Ohio and she also teaches online for the University of Maryland’s University College. In addition, she has lectured in China and Brazil, and in 2003 was selected for a Fulbright Teaching Award. Her educational background is in American politics and she holds a Ph D from the University of Pittsburgh in public administration. For over twenty five years Dr. De Laat has taught political science in small liberal arts institutions, with major teaching areas in public policy, public administration, American politics and institutions, and women in politics and the workplace. She is known as an enthusiastic teacher, favoring active student projects and a dynamic classroom—including the frequent use of current event projects, case studies, and simulations. Prior to her teaching career, Dr. De Laat worked in the Washington, D.C. area, and held a variety of administrative post in government and in quasi-governmental organizations. Her Washington experience has enhanced both her subsequent teaching and research. She has also consulted with several colleges and universities, as well as private and governmental organizations, on gender issues. For the past decade, Dr. De Laat’s professional agenda has focused on the development of a series of teaching cases designed to prepare students, and workers, for gender issues in the contemporary workplace. Originally centered in the United States, the work has recently broadened to include case studies set in workplaces in other countries, including Brazil, China and Germany. Her cases are frequently presented at international case study meetings, and have won awards including a special grant from the American Bar Association’s Commission on Justice and Education. Within the political science community, she has presented on the pedagogy and development of case studies. Additionally, she has also presented at several International Women’s Conferences, and in 2005 conducted an interactive workshop on gender in the workplace at the first Women’s Leadership Conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
