Course description

- has basic skills in video making (scripting, filming, editing)

Content

The course provides an overview of gender and diversity in organizations and labour market in general. The course adopts a ‘doing gender (and diversity)’ approach in understanding how inclusion and exclusion in organizations take place. We reflect how our thinking as well organizational practices carry cultural assumptions concerning gender, race, ethnicity and sexuality, and how these assumptions shift in time and space. We further reflect how these (unconscious) assumptions are ingrained in organizational practices and how they manifest in face-to-face interactions. We further focus on the role of media in circulating, reproducing as well as changing societal and organizational images that privilege certain categories of people while excluding others. Throughout the course, possibilities for change are explored by considering forms of interventions for changing exclusionary practices in organizations.
