Masculinity in Multinationals

Janne Tienari, Alexei Koveshnikov

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


In this chapter, we revisit influential texts on the management of multinational corporations from the perspective of men and masculinities. We argue that the texts (re)construct an idealized image of management based on problematic assumptions and that they carry meanings far beyond the openness and cultural sensitivity which they claim to advocate. We identify these assumptions and disrupt the masculine image of managing multinationals.
