Riesgos del surgimiento de la literatura gerencial dirigida a mujeres

Maria Medina-Vicent

Resumen


El presente artículo aborda el surgimiento de la literatura gerencial dirigida específicamente a mujeres como respuesta al creciente papel de dicho grupo en la gestión de las organizaciones. En primer lugar, se tratarán las bases discursivas de la literatura gerencial en su acepción general. En segundo lugar, se reflexionará en torno a la escasa visibilidad de las mujeres como creadoras de la literatura popular del management, y se identificarán algunas de las pocas figuras femeninas que se podrían considerar dentro de esta categoría. En tercer lugar, se abordará el principal proceso que da lugar al surgimiento de un subgénero de la literatura gerencial dirigido de forma concreta a mujeres. Por último, se tratará de abordar el principal discurso sobre el liderazgo de las mujeres contenido en esta literatura y sus implicaciones éticas para el surgimiento de la igualdad de género en las organizaciones empresariales.
