Abstract This paper brings to light informal norms that surround the production of interview-based research in the accounting domain – specifically regarding the number of interviews, the notion of saturation, length of articles, length of dedicated method section, reference to data coding, and number of block quotations per article. Our premise is that while the formal methodological literature in qualitative research provides guiding principles, the guidance tends to be general, and at times c...

Women are under-represented globally in leadership roles. One theory suggests that this imbalance is due to a mismatch between the qualities women are perceived to have, and the qualities desired i...

ABSTRACTIn two studies we examine how feminine, masculine and hybrid impression management tactics affect perceptions of job applicants in interview settings. Study 1 (N = 133) results indicated that a hybrid tactic was more effective than a feminine tactic to portray competence. Similarly, a hybrid tactic was more effective than a masculine tactic to portray warmth. Further, perceptions of competence and warmth predicted ratings of likability and hirability. Study 2 (N = 222) replicated Study 1...
Labour is the largest input to the productive capacity of the economy. The amount of labour available to be employed – labour supply – is therefore important to understand when gauging inflationary pressure in the economy. However, labour market outcomes are complex. There are considerable differences in outcomes across age cohorts, gender and individuals more generally. In aggregate, New Zealand’s labour force participation has grown since 2000 to a recent all-time high. In this paper, we delve...

We revisit Hakim's influential preference theory to demonstrate how it is both reflective of postfeminism and generative of its values and practices. We differentiate between two interpretations of postfeminism — first a surface‐level ‘successful but obsolete’ version articulated by Hakim and second a multilayered account of postfeminism as a discursive formation connected to a set of discourses around gender, feminism and femininity. Drawing on this latter version we make visible the embeddedne...

This paper gives a critical review of 25 years of critical accounting research on gender, addressing what we have learned to date and what are the most challenging areas to be investigated in the future. It considers accounting as a political construct implicated in perpetuating inequality, with reference to global gender challenges. Gendered histories of accounting and stories of individual struggles show barriers to entry being overcome; but challenges remain. Accounting acts as both a gendere...

The number of women in the legal profession has grown tremendously over the last 40 years, with women now representing about half of all law school graduates. Despite the decades-long pipeline of women into the profession, women's representation among law firm partnerships remains dismally low. One key reason identified for women's minority presence among law firm partners is the high level of attrition of women associates from law firms. This high rate of female attrition undermines efforts to ...

When it comes to selecting a new CEO, judgment really matters. The choice may devastate a company or create enormous value. In his work advising companies, Charan has observed that some board members are especially great at succession decisions. In this article he describes how they go about picking the right candidate. Directors who excel at selection zero in on the two or three distinct capabilities that a CEO will need to thrive at the firm in question. (Charan calls this the “pivot” because ...

Purpose – This study aims to examine both male and female accountants’ perceptions of female career progression in the Accounting Profession in Ireland. This study is set in the context of a steady rise in the total proportion of female members across the seven accountancy bodies worldwide and the recent acknowledged failure of larger accountancy firms to promote women to senior levels in equal measure compared to male colleagues. Design/methodology/approach – A quantitative study (with a qualit...

This paper builds on the findings of the author (published in this issue) in terms of understanding what leads women to leave senior roles in Finance. Using mixed methods techniques, a survey of 90 women suggests women leave due to the interplay of a trigger for leaving, coupled with having choice. The trigger appears to be a combination of work frustrations and personal triggers. While triggers lead women to want to leave, having the ability to leave appears important to actually leaving. The q...
