Description

‘ResearchToday!’ is a research seminar series that shows the width of research in the Business School, and is a forum to foster the collaboration and exchange among interested colleagues. We meet weekly during teaching term times.

This week's seminar presentation will be given by Senior Lecturer Dr Saranzaya Manalsuren. To give you a taste of the session, a brief abstract can be found below:

This collaborative research project (with LSBU Business School colleagues) aims to explore employee voice mechanisms in Mongolia, focusing on how gender impacts on the experience women have with voice opportunities and outcomes. The academic studies on employee voice in transitional peripheries have been scarce, and in the case for Mongolia non-existent. A country which is classified as a success story in building democracy amongst other post-socialist economies, and a workforce in the service sector represented by approximately 70% women, Mongolia might appear a great place for gender equality. However, this statistic changes dramatically at executive level, where only 25.7% are women, despite all gendered structures within broader society and in the legal framework. Therefore, this research investigates the level of engagement of women in voice mechanisms by capturing the experiences of Mongolian mid-to-upper-level female managers in order to examine the voice opportunities and outcomes in macro, meso and micro levels.
