Gender perspective on leadership : Sandvik AB (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie handlar om kvinnliga ledare och deras förutsättningar på företaget Sandvik AB i Sandviken. Vilken typ av kvinnor väljer att bli chefer, vilken bakgrund och vilka egenskaper har de? Jag undersöker om det finns något som hindrar kvinnor från att bli chefer, samt tar reda på hur kvinnorna på Sandvik anser att en bra ledare ska vara. Min slutsats är att kvinnorna i intervjun har varit pappas flicka i den bemärkelsen att de har tytt sig mer till sin pappa än sin mamma, de är lyhörda och de bryr sig om sina medarbetare. De största hindren i kvinnors karriär är familjen, eftersom de kan bli uppsagda på grund av föräldraledighet, samt rekryterarna som anställer män av gammal vana.

Abstract [en]

This study is about female leaders and their conditions on the company Sandvik AB in Sandviken. Which types of women choose to be leaders, what background and qualities have they? I also examine if there is something that is stopping women from becoming leaders and also find out how the women on Sandvik think a good leader should act. My conclusion is that the women in the interview have been daddy’s girls in that sense that they often turn to their father instead of their mother, they are keen and care for their co-workers. The largest obstacle in women’s carrier is the family, since they can loose their job during maternity leave, and that men often chosen recruit other men of old habit instead of women.
