Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hurdant kvinnliga civilekonomer samt civilingenjörer med ledande befattning roller upplever/upplevt sina karriärmöjligheter i en mansdominerad bransch. Vidare skildrar studien om det har skett eventuella förändringar över tid samt om det går att utgöra en skillnad mellan civilekonomer samt civilingenjörer. Med en kvalitativ forskningsansats och intervju med åtta respondenter i olika åldrar studeras hur dessa kvinnor upplevt möjligheterna genom karriärslivet och deras erfarenheter och föreställningar kopplas till teorier såsom företagskultur, glastak samt homosocialitet.

Resultatet visar att kvinnors karriärmöjligheter begränsas utav sociokulturella normer som utövas av män såväl som kvinnor själva. Vilket också medfört att förändringarna sker i långsammare takt än förväntat, att maktstrukturen fortsättningsvis kommer vara i obalans mellan könen, tror jämn fördelning på arbetsplatsen och att jargongen hos civilekonomer är “manligare” än hos civilingenjörerna.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how female economists and civil engineers with leading positions experience / experienced their career opportunities in a male-dominated industry. Furthermore, the study describes whether any changes have occurred over time and whether it is possible to make a difference between economists and engineers. With a qualitative research approach and interviews we carry out with eight women of different ages, it is studied how these women experienced the opportunities through their career life and their experiences and beliefs are linked to theories such as corporate culture, glass ceiling and homosociality.

The result shows that women's career opportunities are limited to socio-cultural norms that are exercised by men as well as women themselves. Which also indicates that the changes are slower than expected. The power structure will continue to be in imbalance between the sexes, believe even distribution in the workplace and that the language of economists is "more masculine" than the civil engineers.
