Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to contribute with further knowledge to why woman have a hard time making a career to a top postition. Our main focus is to examine and explain how inclusion and exclusion of individuals are present at an organizational level and within in the relationships among people within and between organisations. By studying inclusion and exclusion we hope to understand how these can work as difficulties and how they’re present when woman proceed to a top position within organizations. Our results helps us understand that exclusion at the organizational level is due to the fact that there is someone else who has the authority to promote you. We also found a tendency that networking within and between organizations can make it difficult for women due to the fact that most of our woman must develop relationsships to men who are more likely to be in a top position. Within the relationship aspect we find tendencies that show that there has been a great deal of men with the power to promote others and men are more likely to choose other men in to leading positions.
