Workplace Diversity and Gender in Merger and Acquisition Research

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The authors review literature that focuses on women and minorities in the con-text of mergers and acquisitions (henceforth referred to as mergers for the sake of simplicity) aiming to explore how and to what extent diversity and gender issues are studied in merger research. The authors sort the reviewed research into three themes: the impact of gender on merger outcome, the impact of merger on women and minorities, and the impact of merger on diversity management and equality work. The authors suggest that it is important to conduct further studies on the topic but also assert that merger managers can learn from diversity management literature and practices how to manage employees with diverse backgrounds during the post-merger integration.
