Women´s managerial career in a male-dominated organization : -      A study of female managers experience of opportunities and obstacles in their careers, in a male-dominated organization (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att skapa en djupare förståelse för kvinnliga chefers upplevelser av möjligheter och hinder i sin karriär i en mansdominerad organisation. Vi vill även undersöka inom vilka livssfärer dessa hinder och möjligheter uppstår. Vi ställer frågor om hur kvinnliga chefer upplever sin karriär i en mansdominerad organisation samt vilka möjligheter och hinder de upplevt och stött på under sin karriär och hur kvinnliga chefer kan skapa en balans mellan de olika livssfärerna, arbetsliv och privatliv. Studien är av kvalitativ art och tar sig an syftet med inspiration från ett narrativt synsätt för att på bästa möjliga sätt förstå deltagarnas personliga berättelser. Datainsamlingsmetoden har skett genom ett tiotal semistrukturerade intervjuer där resultatet visade att möjligheter och hinder främst konstitueras i arbetsorganisationen, att betydelsen av stöd, både från chefer och från privatlivet visade sig vara betydelsefullt och att privatlivet inte påverkar karriären negativt i lika hög grad som karriären påverkar privatlivet. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to create a deeper understanding for women managers and how they have experience opportunities and obstacles during their career in a male-dominated organization. We would also examine in which part of life this opportunities and obstacles really exist. We are investigating questions about how women managers experience their career in a male-dominated industry, what opportunities and obstacles they met during their career and also how women managers create a work life balance. This study is based on qualitative data and aims to describe the purpose from a narrative approach. The data have been collected from ten unstructured interviews, the result showed that opportunities and obstacles mainly occurs inside the work organization, and that the support from managers, but also from the private life is very important. The result also showed that the private life does not affect the career negatively as much as career affect the private life.
