Change lives. Change organizations. Change the world.
This course focuses on women's working experiences in managerial and professional positions in business and some nonprofit organizations. Using business cases, small group work, videos, lectures, and class discussions, we examine a wide variety of career-related gender issues. They include how the proportions of men and women in a job affect a woman's experience in that job, how networking strategies of men and women differ and what the consequences are, the causes of the gender gap in pay and promotions, and juggling the demands of work and family.
Students discuss solutions, allowing them to develop their own approaches to such issues. The last part of the class focuses on how to change systems (on an organizational and even global level) to facilitate gender equity. Students are given considerable latitude in designing individual gender-focused projects and papers that reflect their interests.
This elective course is offered to all Stanford GSB and Sloan students. Current students, please check MyGSB for more information.
