About the Book

Gender could be understood as a construct, which enables men and women to conduct themselves in a characteristic style and helps them understand their respective roles in family and society. The business world and management is no exception to this fact. Researchers have constantly studied the effect of gender on management and business but the dynamic changes in the business environment leaves a gap leading to a paucity of perspectives on the role of gender in management. Taking clue from research, an attempt has been made here to discuss, deliberate and present multiple perspectives in a volume showcasing the best practices, success stories, research papers from across the world. The contributors of this volume have covered a wide variety of subjects encompassing important issues on Gender and Management, which broadly include educational management, enterprise management, healthcare, employment, and labour issues in the manufacturing and service sectors. This book is primarily a compendium of articles on issues relating to gender and management, which will benefit professionals, scholars and researchers. The volume provides an excellent opportunity for all those interested to update their knowledge on the concept, processes, issues, emerging paradigms on Gender and Management from a multidimensional perspective.
