Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook fills a much needed gap in methods and methodologies for those engaged in gender and intersectionality research in management studies. The contents cover traditional and novel approaches for those interested in giving voice to equity deserving groups who are overlooked, invisible and marginalized in management studies. It is a must have resource for all gender scholars.’
– Gina Grandy, University of Regina, Canada

‘Professors Stead, Elliott and Mavin have brought together numerous leaders in the field of gender in management to create an excellent understanding of the interdisciplinary and complex nature in conducting gender and management research. This welcomed and innovative Handbook delivers a range of methods that capture and provide critical insights to help our comprehension of gendered behaviours and practices. An extremely valuable addition to the field of gender and management.’
– Adelina Broadbridge, University of Stirling, UK
