Abstract [en]

Society is facing rapid and continuous change. In order to participate in the development, organizations need to take advantage of all the knowledge and skills available in the labor market. Women leaders in top positions are still in the minority but do as good a job as their male colleagues. She brings different dynamics and a new dimension in the work culture but is nevertheless excluded from the mightiest rooms. The purpose of this study is to elucidate the organizational factors that determine and facilitate for women to take on leadership positions. Through semi-structured interviews with six women leaders, the material has resulted in a thematic analysis with four themes. These themes are the workplace culture, impersonation, conditions and driving forces. The result confirms earlier research showing the importance of a healthy corporate culture to shape and develop tomorrow’s passionate women leaders.

Abstract [sv]

Samhället står inför snabba och kontinuerliga förändringar. För att kunna vara med i utvecklingen behöver organisationer ta tillvara på all kunskap och kompetens som finns tillgänglig på arbetsmarknaden. Kvinnliga ledare på toppositioner är fortfarande i minoritet men gör ett lika gott jobb som sina manliga kollegor. Hon tillför annan dynamik och en ny dimension i arbetskulturen men som trots detta stängs ute från de mäktigaste rummen. Syftet med studien är att belysa organisatoriska faktorer som avgör och underlättar för kvinnor att ta sig an ledande positioner. Genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex kvinnliga ledare har materialet resulterat i en tematisk analys med fyra teman. Dessa temaområden är arbetsplatskultur, personifiering, förutsättningar och drivkrafter. Resultatet styrker tidigare forskning och visar vikten av en sund företagskultur för att forma och ta fram morgondagens passionerade kvinnliga ledare.
