Women's Career Trajectories in Prestigious Occupations: a Case Study of Russian Diplomats
2018
This Master’s thesis explores the career paths of women in Russian diplomatic service. The career paths are examined from two different angles. On the one hand, the analysis focuses on the organizational mechanisms that produce and reproduce gender differences, which to a large extent shape women’s career paths. It also focuses on the symbolic gender hierarchies that constitute the organizational gender order. On the other hand, the thesis deals with specific everyday strategies and tactics employed by individuals in order to overcome or adapt to gendered institutional barriers. The paper also features a detailed typology of women’s career strategies in Russian diplomacy. The empirical part of this work is based on ten qualitative semi-structured interviews with career diplomats, students and experts.
