1 MS4053: Understanding and Managing Behaviour in Organisations Assignment 1 (40% weighting) The task: Write an ESSAY of 1500 words (+/- 10%) excluding bibliography on the following topic: Discuss with appropriate theories and concepts what you regard as the best practical solution to improve gender diversity at the senior leadership level in organizations. Essay topic background: Studies have shown that gender diversity in organisational leadership benefits organisations and societies from various perspectives. These studies have, however, underlined that despite significant shifts towards greater acceptance of women in leadership roles over the last 50 years, women are still underrepresented in organisational leadership (to varying degrees) everywhere in the world. A range of remedial solutions have been considered in different countries, from focusing on education that abolishes the traditional gender roles, to setting gender quotas for boards of directors by legislative bodies. You task is to critically analyse what you regard as the most important solution that can tackle the problem of gender diversity in senior leadership positions in organisations. Important points to note: • You should refer to examples of real-life company/ country case studies in your essay. • You should justify your choice of solution by, among all, justifying why it is the best way and what you regard as ‘the best’ in this context (e.g. is it the fairest? the quickest? the most enduring?) • You should meaningfully refer to at least one of the articles listed below in your discussions. A general reference to these articles is not enough. • Your essay should adopt a conventional essay structure i.e.: introduction, main body of essay and discussion followed by conclusion. • You must indicate the wordcount on your essay. Please note, for every 100 words extra, the mark will be deducted by 1 CGS point. • You must include word count on the first page of your assessment.
