Abstract and Keywords

Recent theoretical developments challenge the ‘gender and diversity’ label. Emerging critical scholarship on ‘intersectionality’ underscores inevitable interplay among aspects of difference and suggests the profound consequences of treating single identity categories, such as gender, in isolation. This article seeks to extend these developments in the context of critical management studies by considering how relevant scholarship has thus far ‘made a difference’ (i.e., how it matters and how it constructs difference) and how else it might do so. It begins by asking what has been learnt from three decades of critical exploration in gender and organizing. The article then weaves current gender claims into conversation with other aspects of difference in an effort to stimulate research focused on the complex intersections at which people actually live and work.

Keywords: CMS, gender, diversity, intersectionality, single identity, critical scholarship
