Organization as Gendered Communication Act

Albert J. Mills, Peter Chiaramonte

Abstract


Abstract:
A number of recent studies have suggested that sexual discrimination
in the workplace can be addressed through strategies designed to alter
organizational communications. This paper argues that such strategies, although worthwhile, fail to deal with the underlying character of organizations. The meta-communication character of organizations is examined through a number of historical and contemporary issues of gender.


Résumé:
Des études récentes ont avancé que le problème de la discrimination
sexuelle en milieu de travail peut être abordé par le biais de stratégies destinées à modifier la communication organisationnelles. Cet article tente de démontrer que de telles stratégies, au demeurant valables, négligent de prendre en compte le caractère inhérent des organisations. Le caractère méta-communicationnel des organisations est analysé à partir de quelques faits contemporains et historiques relatifs à la différence sexuelle.
