In the Fifth Edition of Women and Men in Management, author Gary N. Powell provides a comprehensive survey and review of the literature on gender and organizations. This new edition is more intersectional than ever with expanded coverage of how race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identify and expression, and generational differences intersect with gender in the workplace. Packed with the latest statistics, research, and examples, the text explores important issues like the gender pay gap, stereotypes and biases, sexual harassment in the workplace, work-life balance, and practical strategies for creating inclusive cultures.

“This is a must-read for students. The information included in the text relates to everyone who has or will be employed in the private or public sector.”
“This is text is exceptionally well-written, provides comprehensive coverage of seminal theoretical and empirical work in the field, and one that students consistently enjoy reading and discussing.”
“In a thorough and compact manner, the author has infused this book with a lot of great content. He supplements it with statistics that I require students to zero in on in every chapter.”
“This is an excellent text for both undergraduate and graduate students with many different majors. It has a good balance of theory and practical guidance, without having a distinct social or political “agenda” as is problematic with a number of texts addressing gender. It is very readable and quite affordable for students covering issues that working men and women will face from the beginning to the end of their careers.”
