“This class is not for you” - Does the way we talk about entrepreneurship have gendered consequences?

  • Veras Gräsmatta Vera Sandbergs allé 8 Västra Götalands län Sweden (map)

This workshop offers insights into a UG module on Gender and Entrepreneurship. We will work through some exercises that Sally uses on this module to engage students with critical concepts in gender and entrepreneurship. The module is underpinned by critical and feminist theory and pedagogy and Sally will introduce these concepts and how they relate to the aims of the practical exercises and the module.

The session will be of interest to anyone teaching or researching entrepreneurship education.

Sally Jones is Reader in Entrepreneurship and Gender Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Faculty of Business and Law. She is also co-head of the Sylvia Pankhurst Gender and Diversity Research Centre. Her research interests include feminist and critical approaches to entrepreneurship education, and the role of class and gender in the enterprise culture.
