This project will examine workplace discourses around sex discrimination in a range of industry case studies.
ARC Discovery Grant
In analysing the persistence of women’s disadvantage in the workplace, research has focused on the inadequacy of anti-discrimination law and both government and corporate EEO policies. Less attention has been paid to the myriad ways in which these proscriptions of discrimination are understood and implemented in the workplace.
The project will contribute to a better theoretical understanding of the ways in which women’s workplace disadvantage is constructed and negotiated within specific organisational contexts and cultures and also provide practical guidance for human rights agencies.
