On this episode of en(gender)ed, our guest is CV Harquail, a change agent, author, consultant and retired management professor who works at the intersection of organizational change, feminist praxis, leadership, and digital technology. We will be talking about her recent book, Feminism: A Key Idea for Business and Society--the first to combine feminism and business. We explore how the ideas in the book craft a vision of work where businesses are profitable, products and work are meaningful, financial returns are consistent and fair, and individuals, communities, and the planet all flourish. CV offers practical tools, useful frameworks, and novel resources for initiating and sustaining real change.
During our conversation, CV and I referenced the following resources:
- The definition of feminism as defined by bell hooks in Feminism is for Everybody
- The differences between equity, equality and parity
- The five feminist values CV offers for work and business
- Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza's definition of kyriarchy
- Neoliberalism's role in shaping the world of business today
- The six more common ways organizations respond to gender inequality in the workplace
Be sure to check in next week for Part 2 of our conversation with CV where she talks about feminist organizational structures, practices, and systems, and how businesses can implement them and be transformed by them.
