Karsten provides comprehensive, interdisciplinary treatment of gender-related issues and their impact on management. This book combines theoretical information about women's workplace roles, tokenism and power, typically found in Women's Studies literature, with information on topics such as career planning, mentoring, and networking, more commonly discussed in business-oriented books dealing with the progress of executive women. Experiences unique to women of color are incorporated, as are sex-role stereotypes and socialization processes that have affected both females and males.

A style of management consistent with an organic structure is presented first along with a discussion of the changing nature of managerial work. A historical overview of women's contributions to management theory is a unique feature of the book. Equal employment opportunity laws and regulations are covered thoroughly and sexual harassment is addressed, from the viewpoints of both the organization and those affected by this serious workplace problem. Management of workforce diversity, seen as essential for organizations that wish to fully develop all human talent to remain competitive globally, is discussed next. Among other topics explored are assertiveness, balancing career and family or personal life, and women's roles in international management. Case studies, adapted from actual events, also are included. This book is an important resource for business executives and students who wish to gain a better understanding of current gender-related challenges facing organizations.
