Women’s Experiences in Small IT Firms in Canada

  • Overview

  • Progress

  • Project Team

Existing research on gender and organizations suggests that larger organizations may be friendly to women because formal policies in these environments have helped to overcome casual gender-based discrimination in the workplace. There is less research on women working in smaller firms. The purpose of this study is to examine whether smaller, more informal and less bureaucratized organizations are more (or less) friendly to women working in IT.
