Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

Adherence to neoliberal processes and practices is impeding progress towards greater gender equality within organizations in New Zealand. A system premised on delivering equity and fairness has instead exacerbated injustices both in the workplace and wider society. Academics advocate a strong feminist-driven critique to highlights these contradictions and inspire change.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
