This course focuses on the intersection of recent sociological scholarship on work and organizations, and issues that are high priorities for human resource managers and executives. Namely, the course addresses three inter-related themes: (1) power and influence in organizations, (2) misconduct in organizations, and (3) inequality by gender, race and other ascribed characteristics in organizations. Students are introduced to key sociological concepts and theories that address these themes. Emphasis is given to how these analytical tools can help address concrete managerial challenges, and thus there is extensive use of cases and other empirical studies of workplaces and organizations.
