Calling all female business scholars!
Beate Sjåfjell has written an op-ed in the University of Oslo’s online paper Uniforum about Daughters of Themis and how it started with a recognition of the lack of gender balance in company law scholarship in egalitarian Norway.
Beate discusses, inter alia, whether the current lack of gender balance in business scholarship matter to the scholarship itself: ‘We know that the contribution of business and finance is necessary to meet the grand challenge of our time: securing the social foundation for people everywhere now and in the future while staying within planetary boundaries. We also know that the path we are on now, of ‘business as usual’, is a very certain path towards a very uncertain future. Critical perspectives and alternative approaches to mainstream, male-dominated business scholarship are therefore sorely needed’.
