It provides a comprehensive, objective and dispassionate coverage of gender issues in human resource management' - International Employment Relations Review `If you were to choose a dozen books as a foundation library about women in the workplace, this book should be amongst them' - Women in Management Review Around the world, women comprise a greater proportion of both workers and managers than ever before. However, women continue to be excluded from top management positions, segregated into low-paying occupations, and paid less for the same work as men.

The book covers a unique and wide range of topics, including employment decisions, work teams, leadership, sexual harassment, workplace romance, career development, the glass ceiling, work and family, and strategies for promoting an organizational culture of nondiscrimination, diversity, and inclusion. It offers concrete recommendations that individuals and organizations may implement to ensure that all people have fulfilling and productive careers, regardless of their biological sex. New to This Edition: - Focus on "where we are now" - Expanded coverage of topics that have received increased attention in recent years (e.g., entrepreneurship, the glass ceiling, work and family, work teams, global leaders, homophobia in the workplace) - Focus on gender-incorporates theories and research on the intersection of gender and other identities (e.g., race, ethnicity, age, nationality, sexual orientation) - International in focus through reference to research studies and statistics from across the globe - More accessible with greater use of corporate examples
