    Adaption or recognition of the autistic subject? - reimagining an autistic work life: deconstructing the notion of ‘real jobs’ within the Swedish neurodiverse movement2012Ingår i: Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation, ISSN 1052-2263, E-ISSN 1878-6316, Vol. 37, nr 3, s. 203-212Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Several researchers stress the importance of listening to autistic adults’ own experiences of work and related issues.This paper critically explores an ambivalent discourse of empowerment using notions of employment and work life in the Swedishautistic self-advocacy movement. The discourse analysis is based on articles from the Swedish autistic self-advocacy magazineEmpowerment. In the data, three key themes linked to the notion of work are identified: alternative meanings of a “real job”,formulations of work-related problems, and solutions to these problems. We identify two storylines. The first, more dominantone, we call the recreated norm storyline. This storyline, in line with an individual/medical perspective on autism as deficit,represents autism as causing people with autism to have difficulties finding and keeping jobs in the open labour market and asentailing employment support. The second, counter narrative we call the challenged norm storyline. In line with the social modelof disability, it focuses on structural barriers and discrimination against people with autism on the labour market.

    Unequal physical activity among children with cerebral palsy in Sweden: A national registry study2021Ingår i: Health Science Reports, E-ISSN 2398-8835, Vol. 4, nr 3, artikel-id e342Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To examine the extent to which sex, country of birth, and functional aspects influence participation in physical education and physical leisure activity among children with cerebral palsy (CP) in Sweden.

    Methods: This national cross-sectional registry study included children with CP aged 6 to 18 years who participated in the Swedish national quality registry, the Cerebral Palsy Follow-up Program, CPUP, in 2015. Comparisons and associations between sex, country of birth, and functional aspects and physical leisure/physical education were examined using chi-squared and multivariable logistic regression analysis.

    Results: The study included 1935 children. Of them, 1625 (87%) reported participating in physical education and 989 (53%) reported participating in physical leisure activity. Children born in Sweden had higher odds of participating in physical education (OR: 1.99; 95% CI: 1.20-3.28) and physical leisure activity (OR: 2.51; 95% CI: 1.70-3.72) compared with children born outside Europe. Greater impairment of gross motor function was associated with lower participation levels. Boys participated slightly more frequently in leisure activities than girls.

    Conclusion: Enhancing social inclusion with regard to disability, birth country, and sex are important and achievable goals for policymakers and practitioners for promoting participation in physical activity for children and adolescents with CP.

    Inequity in physiotherapeutic interventions for children with Cerebral Palsy in Sweden: a national registry study2020Ingår i: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227, Vol. 109, nr 4, s. 774-782Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the distribution of physiotherapeutic interventions for children with Cerebral Palsy in Sweden from an equity perspective, considering sex, country of birth and geographical region.

    Method: This national cross‐sectional registry study includes children with Cerebral Palsy aged 0‐18 years who participated in 2015 in the Swedish national quality registry, the Cerebral Palsy follow‐up programme, CPUP. Comparisons and associations between physiotherapeutic interventions and sex, country of birth and geographical regions were conducted using chi‐square and logistic regression analysis, controlling for cognitive level, level of motor function, age group and dominating symptom.

    Results: Of the 2855 participants, 2201 (79%) had received physiotherapy. Children born in Sweden had 1.60 times higher odds (95% CI 1.10‐2.33) of receiving physiotherapy compared with children born in foreign countries. Distribution of physiotherapeutic interventions differed significantly between geographical regions. No associations between sex and physiotherapeutic interventions were observed.

    Conclusion: The results of this study indicate inequity in care in Sweden towards children with Cerebral Palsy born in other counties. Further, physiotherapeutic interventions were not equally distributed in different geographical regions of Sweden. Knowledge of inequity is crucial in order to address the problem.

    Att peka med hela handen: Om arbetsvillkor och kön bland första linjens chefer2009Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Historically, leadership research has focused on managers’ characteristics and behavior, their leadership style and its implications for a business’s success. In contrast, this dissertation examines how working conditions in the workplace affect first-level managers’ everyday work, their possibilities to practice leadership, and consequently their leadership style. The theoretical framework guiding the dissertation is a gender analysis with a doing gender perspective and the methodology is a case study. Two workplace organizations in a Swedish municipality are studied: a male-dominated manufacturing industry and a female-dominated elderly care service. The empirical materials consist of twenty-six semi-structured interviews, primarily with male and female first-level managers, but also with their immediate supervisors. In addition, the materials include a questionnaire and organizational documents. The results show that organizational structure and culture have implications for managers’ working conditions and consequently the leadership style they are willing and able to implement. The sex ratio among employees did not have any implications for which type of leadership informants described in their everyday practices. The ideal leadership and the everyday leadership practices portrayed by informants entail being explicit, controlling and rational managers who are able to make decisions and carry forth extensive structural changes. Their narratives reveal an authoritarian and task-oriented leadership style that has its roots in early industrialism. Leadership is strongly marked by masculinity, and even though women and men describe practicing the same type of leadership in their everyday work, their ideas about gender depict two complete opposites in which women and femininity is subordinated to men and masculinity. This indicates a divergence between the gender we think and the gender we do. Nonetheless, sex ratio among employees has implications for the level of sexism. While informants in both workplace organizations described gender discrimination, only those in the manufacturing industry described experiencing sexual harassment.

    Dignity: A Prerequisite for Attractive Work in Elderly Care2017Ingår i: Society, health and vulnerability, E-ISSN 2002-1518, Vol. 8, nr 1, artikel-id 1322455Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores discourses of new public management (NPM) and dignity at work by considering how attractive work is represented by managers and professionals in Swedish elderly care. The analysis, guided by critical discursive psychology, uses qualitative interviews with 31 managers, nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists at nine workplaces. Three storylines of how attractive work is represented were identified: salary and status, high-quality care, and working conditions and competence. These storylines revealed two strategies by which dignity is attained and defended: strategies of resistance and strategies of organizational citizenship. A conclusion is that identity, power and position are key aspects for interpreting how managers and professionals navigate between discourses of dignity. Work in elderly care is under pressure from the major shift towards neoliberalism and the techniques of NPM. Discourses upholding NPM are present to only a limited extent, whilst discourses rejecting NPM principles and safeguarding dignity at work and dignity as care providers constitute the basis of the representations. Hence, another conclusion is that the consequences of NPM undermine prior conceptions of the importance of care work. Although dignity at work appears to be a prerequisite for attractive work, it may be an unattainable goal for organizations.

    Earner–carer model2016Ingår i: The Wiley-Blackwell encyclopedia of gender and sexuality studies / [ed] Nancy A. Naples, New York: Wiley-Blackwell, 2016Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The earner–carer model is a welfare state approach based on the ideological, gender‐egalitarian premise that men and women are equally involved in both paid labor and unpaid care work. Different welfare state policy structures divide into those that support either women's paid work within the labor market or the traditional division of male breadwinner/female homemaker. Hence, policy measures produce different incentives for families to divide up paid work and unpaid care work. During the 1990s, many feminists studying welfare state issues criticized the overlooked gendered aspects, and stressed the importance of including unpaid care work and all socially constructed properties in the analysis. Throughout the twentieth century, the traditional male breadwinner/female full‐time homemaker ideal of family life was dominant in the Western welfare states, but during the second half of the century it became less pronounced, along with women's increased participation in the labor market.

    Konflikter och arbetsmiljö: om organisatoriska förutsättningar för konflikthantering på en kvinnohomogen arbetsplatsom2022Ingår i: Framtidens arbetsliv: arbetsvillkor och arbetsmiljö / [ed] Kristina Palm; Lars Ivarsson, Lund: Studentlitteratur AB, 2022, s. 217-242Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kapitel undersöker vilka konflikter som uppkommer och hur medarbetare, arbetsledare och första linjens chef hanterar dem på en kvinnohomogen arbetsplats. Vidare tittar vi på vilka organisatoriska förutsättningar som finns vad gäller konflikthantering, där relationsarbete är en central del av arbetsinnehållet. Intresset ligger i frågan om hur man för framtiden kan bygga en långsiktigt hållbar arbetsmiljö i en sektor där stress och hälsa i dag är ansträngd och sjuktalen höga. Argumenten till varför detta är en relevant framtidsfråga inom konfliktforskningen hänger samman med antaganden om att arbetskraften kommer bli mer heterogen, och att utbildningsnivåerna och specialisering i arbetslivet kommer öka. Det gör att olika professioner med potentiellt skilda kunskaper, värderingar och normer, kommer att samarbeta. Sammantaget ökar detta risken för missförstånd, irritation och osämja. Kapitlet bygger på forskningsprojektet Att räkna med bråk? En studie av konflikter och psykisk ohälsa i kvinnodominerade arbetsplatser ur ett genusperspektiv.

    Kraftfulla bett eller tandlösa råd?: Om två svenska lärosätens arbete med jämställdhet samt etnisk och social mångfald.2012Ingår i: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, ISSN 1654-5443, nr 1-2, s. 95-114Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Academia is demanded to design and undertake equality work within the organization. A common way of organizing this work is through committees with consultative assignment in relation to university principal and management board. The purpose of this article is to scrutinize meeting protocols from gender equality committees as well as from social and ethnic equality committees. Further more to analyze how these committeemembers, from a gender and organizational theory perspective, perceive the changing interventions. The main research questions are: are there differences between gender equality and social and ethnic committees or among the committee members´ experiences of the committee work? On what feministic assumptions do the intervention of change rely and do they create prerequisites for change of power relations and what the limitations are?

    The data consists of interviews with 22 members within these committees and 80 meeting protocols during a period of four years, at two Swedish universities. The result show that the gender equality committees are more established compared to the committees of social and ethnic equality. Another result is that the activity within the committees to high degree consists of internal activities, such as information and discussions concerning their way of organizing their work. The external interventions of change are foremost of strategical or educational character. The committee members express uncertainty about the achievement of their work with changing interventions. These interventions are presumably of great importance but not designed in a comprehensive way. Hence these interventions probably do not challenge the power relations in an essential way, since they do not change the conditions and determining factors that are constructing and maintaining them in the first place.

    Abstract [sv]

    Väsentliga delar av arbetet mot diskriminering och främjandet av lika rättigheter vid de svenska lärosätena sker i råd, vars uppdrag är att vara närmast rådgivande och beredande organ till rektor och ledningsstab. Datamaterial för denna artikel består av 28 intervjuer med ledamöter i jämställdhetsråd och råd för social och etnisk mångfald vid tre svenska lärosäten. En trend förefaller vara att dessa råd slås samman eller att diskussioner kring en eventuell sammanslagning förs. Med bakgrund av dessa förändringar återfinns tre ståndpunkter bland rådens ledamöter. I de två första, Risk för jämställdhetsråden och Risk för båda råden, synliggörs ett grundläggande antagande om att frågan om kön och jämställdhet är särskild i relation till de övriga diskrimineringsgrunderna och på så sätt blir överordnad de övriga, vilket skapar en exkluderande mekanism. I den tredje ståndpunkten, Bättre för båda råden, framställs frågan om kön och jämställdhet som likställd övriga diskrimineringsgrunder vilket utmanar normen och följaktligen skapar en inkluderande mekanism. Ståndpunkterna bygger på marknadsekonomiska logiker om vad som är mest effektivt och de olika ståndpunkterna ställs mot varandra. Härigenom belyses intressekonflikterna mellan råden och ett politiskt problem synliggörs, vilket skapar utrymme för förändring.

    Entrepreneurship and Gender Equality in Academia: a Complex Combination in Practice2015Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 5, nr 1, s. 69-92Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article takes as its starting point two current trends in academia – the promotion of academic entrepreneurship and innovation and the promotion of gender equality – and discusses how different gender equality perspectives are interwoven, or not, into academia’s transformation processes towards entrepreneurial universities. On the basis of an analysis of 26 interviews conducted with personnel at two Swedish universities, the article investigates how concepts of academic entrepreneurship and innovation on the one hand and gender equality on the other hand are constructed and filled with meaning as well as how they are entangled and what effects are produced by this way of thinking and acting. Our analysis reveals tensions between the two policy goals, together with tensions within each goal. An overall conclusion is that articulations and ways of speaking about the policy goal of academic entrepreneurship and innovation were to some extent interwoven with the policy goal of gender equality, especially in the broader perspectives on academic entrepreneurship. However, the articulations of strategies and practice of the two policy goals essentially ran parallel, and were not entangled with one another. This is because strategies or substantial initiatives for merging gender equality into the agenda of academic entrepreneurship and innovation were lacking.

    The silent voices: Pupil participation for gender equality and diversity2020Ingår i: Educational research (Windsor. Print), ISSN 0013-1881, E-ISSN 1469-5847, Vol. 62, nr 1, s. 1-17Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The international body of research on student voice concludes that active pupil participation has multiple positive effects on the work environment and learning for pupils. In a large study on gender equality and diversity work in Swedish schools, it became evident that pupils wanted to be active participants. However, pupils considered that their wishes were, to a large extent, ignored. Therefore, it is important to try to understand this further by investigating pupils’ perceptions of their experiences.

    Purpose: The purpose of the study was to explore how discourses of participation and power are practised, not practised, and materialised, by focusing in-depth on pupils’ representations of gender equality and diversity work within a small sample of Swedish schools.

    Methodology: The study is based on data from 10 focus group interviews with 43 pupils from 4 different schools, 2 compulsory schools (pupil ages 6–15) and 2 upper secondary schools (pupil ages 16–18), in Sweden. The thematic analysis utilised a gender perspective anchored in a critical policy analysis approach.

    Analysis and Findings: The analysis of focus group data identified three pupil representations of gender equality and diversity work: a onetime occurrence, longing for participation and the (un)fair teacher. These representations were derived from and intertwined with discourses on pupil participation and power. Three sub-discourses were found within the discourse on participation and power: normative barriers to participation, structural barriers to participation and openings in the barriers to participation. The first two sub-discourses support the maintenance of unequal power relations between adults and pupils, while the third challenges these power relations.

    Conclusions: Our study suggests that no substantial levels of participation or power among the pupils were represented at the schools. Instead, the analysis visualises pupils as expressing powerlessness and disengagement. However, the discourse Openings in the barriers to participation, together with pupils’ democratic abilities, has the potential to enable change and the development of pupil participation in schools.

    This paper explores how workers in the women-dominated public sectorin Sweden speak about and make sense of gender and intragroup conflictand the consequences of this way of thinking and acting for genderequality at work. Using qualitative interviews with 26 first-level managersand employees, we introduce an analytical framework that employs criticaldiscourse psychology and the conceptualization of a postfeministsensibility at work. We identified three competing meanings (postfeministstorylines) of gender and intragroup conflict: Supporting the genderedmeanings of conflict, Unawareness of conflict’s gendered meanings andCounteracting the gendered meanings of conflict. The welfare workersacknowledged the role of gender in intragroup conflicts but, paradoxically,constructed their own workplaces as gender neutral, withoutinequalities related to gender. We interpret these three postfeminist storylinesas coping strategies; that is, as ways to make sense of the falsepromise of gender egalitarianism that characterizes the Swedish labourmarket.

    On equal terms?: gendering labour markets, the organisation of work, and the well-being of employees2021Ingår i: Gendered Norms at Work: New Perspectives on Work Environment and Health / [ed] Britt-Inger Keisu; Susanne Tafvelin; Helene Brodin, Springer Nature, 2021, s. 1-11Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter introduces theoretical and empirical perspectives on the gendering of work organisations, working conditions, and work relations, including health and safety at work. It discusses why gendered norms at work continue to be an important field of study and why Sweden is an interesting case for exploring the gendering of labour markets and jobs. In particular, the chapter discusses how the gendering of work organisations and jobs in health and social care have consequences for women working in these sectors. The chapter also presents the organisation of this volume and the contribution of each of its chapters.

    Administrators or Critical Cynics?: A Study of Gender Equality Workers in Swedish Higher Education2014Ingår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 22, nr 3, s. 204-218Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Gender equality workers have to perform a balancing act between feminist ideals for change and neo-liberal management trends. So-called audit discourses have gradually been introduced into Swedish universities, in line with an enterprise model. In this new context, the aim of our article is to investigate how gender equality workers at universities articulate gender equality and possibilities for change. What are their visions and strategies for achieving gender equality? This article is based on interviews with gender equality workers at three Swedish universities and explores how the legitimate gender equality worker is constructed. We found that there is a lack of visionary thinking among gender equality workers, which manifests itself in a sense that the distinction between visions and strategies has collapsed and technologies like auditing have become the vision. It seems that, whilst navigating between liberal feminist discourses and an increasingly neo-liberal setting, two positions are available for gender equality workers. The first is the "administrator", who asks for more tools and monitoring of gender equality, in order for the work to become more efficient and legitimate. The second position, the "critical cynic", makes scepticism and resistance to the increasing bureaucratization of gender equality work possible, but lacks alternative visions and strategies. Gender equality initiatives have thus become increasingly embedded in auditing technologies, and the possibilities for articulating alternatives or visionary ideals, beyond liberal values of anti-discrimination, seem limited.

    Sexual Harassment and Gender-based Violence: A Study of Staff and Students at Umeå University2022Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Sexual harassment and other forms of offensive behaviour are serious problems within academia. They affect students and staff alike and are found in all disciplines. In this study, we consider the various forms and expressions of harassment. In addition to sexual harassment, this includes bullying, cyberbullying, victimisation and incivility, all of which we examine under the umbrella term gender-based violence. 

    The purpose of this report is to describe the occurrence of and analyse the corelation between sexual harassment, and other forms of gender-based violence, and the work environment and health of staff and students at Umeå University. The report is based on a national study of the prevalence of sexual harassment in academia conducted within the framework of The Research and Collaboration Programme on Gender-based Violence. 

    In answer to a direct question regarding whether the respondent had been subjected to unwanted sexual attention in their place of work/study, 2.2% of staff and 6.4% of students replied in the affirmative. Among women, prevalence is higher among female students than female employees, with 7% of this group having been subjected to such behaviour, and the same is true of men, with more male students (5.5%) reporting incidents. When the question of sexual harassment is broken down into specific situations and acts, the figure increases significantly, with as many as 51% of female employees and 29% of men stating that they had experienced at least one of the specified situations. Notably, levels among female employees of Umeå University are significantly higher than the figure for the Swedish higher education sector as a whole. The corresponding figure for students at Umeå University is, however, lower than the national average for the higher education sector, with 16% of women and 9% of men responding in the affirmative. 

    There are also notable disparities between the sexes with regard to bullying, with twice as many women as men reporting problems, and reporting a higher frequency of offences. However, bullying is reported to a greater extent by male than female students. There are also gender disparities in incivility, with significantly more female employees reporting incidents than men. 

    Sexism in the form of sexual harassment and gender-based violence can of course be understood as a means of academic reproduction; i.e., as one of the components that maintains and recreates the various structures, hierarchies and gender-inequitable workplaces in academia. As this study makes clear, sexual harassment and gender-based violence create a systematic and recurring pattern of unwelcome events that can be understood as institutional mechanisms and behaviours that risk being normalised. This also produces other problems in addition to gender inequality. In the study, we find clear correlations for both staff and students between sexual harassment and other forms of gender-based violence and experiences of the psychosocial and organisational work environment and health.

    Sexuella trakasserier och genusbaserad utsatthet: En studie bland anställda och studenter vid Umeå universitet2022Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sexuella trakasserier och andra typer av kränkande beteenden är allvarliga problem inom akademin. Det drabbar både studenter och anställda och förekommer inom alla discipliner. I denna studie tar vi hänsyn till utsatthetens olika former och uttryck genom att förutom sexuella trakasserier inkludera förekomst av mobbning, nätmobbning, kränkande särbehandling och ohövligt beteende under samlingsnamnet ’genusbaserad utsatthet’. 

    Syftet med denna rapport är att beskriva förekomst av, och analysera samband mellan, sexuella trakasserier och andra former av genusbaserad utsatthet, samt arbetsmiljö och hälsa bland anställda och studenter vid Umeå universitet. Till grund för denna rapport ligger en nationell prevalensstudie om sexuella trakasserier i akademin som genomfördes inom ramen för Forsknings- och samverkansprogrammet om sexuella trakasserier och genusbaserad utsatthet. 

    På en direkt fråga om respondenten blivit utsatt för icke önskvärd sexuell uppmärksamhet på sitt arbete/sin studieplats så rapporterar totalt 2,2 procent av de anställda och 6,4 procent av studenter att de blivit utsatta. Prevalensen är högre bland kvinnorna i gruppen studenter där 7 procent har utsatts och dessutom är utsatta män (5,5 procent) vanligare bland studenter jämfört med anställda. När frågan om sexuella trakasserier istället bryts ner i frågor om konkreta situationer och handlingar stiger siffrorna betydligt, uppemot hela 51 procent för anställda kvinnor svarade jakande på om de utsatts för minst en av de uppräknade situationerna och 29 procent av männen svarade också ja på dessa frågor. Noterbart här är att nivåerna för anställda kvinnor vid Umeå universitet är betydligt högre i jämförelse med högskolesektorn som helhet. Vad gäller studenterna så är motsvarande siffror vid Umeå universitet dock lägre jämfört med högskolesektorn som helhet, vid frågor om konkreta situationer och handlingar, 16 procent för kvinnorna och 9 procent för männen. 

    Könsskillnader är även noterbara i avseende på mobbning, där andelen anställda som utsatts för mobbning är dubbelt så stor bland kvinnorna jämfört med männen samt att kvinnorna rapporterar högre frekvens. Bland studenterna rapporterar dock män en högre utsatthet vad gäller mobbning. Det finns även könsskillnader kring ohövligt beteende där betydligt fler bland de anställda kvinnorna rapporterar utsatthet jämfört med männen. 

    Sexism i form av sexuella trakasserier och genusbaserad utsatthet kan förstås som ett medel för akademins reproduktion, det vill säga, som en utav de beståndsdelar som upprätthåller och återskapar akademins olika strukturer, hierarkier och ojämlika arbetsplatser. I denna studie blir det tydligt att sexuella trakasserier och genusbaserad utsatthet skapar ett systematiskt och upprepat mönster av ovälkomna händelser. Det kan förstås som institutionella mekanismer och beteenden som härigenom riskerar att normaliseras. Förutom ojämlikhet finns här även andra problem som produceras. I studien finns för både anställda och studenter tydliga samband mellan sexuella trakasserier, de andra formerna av genusbaserad utsatthet och upplevelsen av psykosocial och organisatorisk arbetsmiljö samt hälsa.

    The concept of intragroup conflict in relation to gender and well-being in women-dominated work2021Ingår i: Gendered norms at work: new perspectives on work environment and health / [ed] Britt-Inger Keisu; Susanne Tafvelin; Helene Brodin, Springer, 2021, s. 197-213Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter reviews the current state of the science on intragroup conflicts and its impact on employee well-being. It also explores how task, relationship and process conflicts relate to gender perceptions and practices among welfare workers in women-dominated work. The analysis, guided by the theory of intragroup conflict, uses qualitative interviews with 26 managers and their employees at three workplaces in Sweden. The review concludes that, although conflicts are emotional, not all of them affect welfare workers' well-being over time. Only relationship conflicts seem to be hurtful to employee well-being. The empirical analysis suggests that intragroup conflicts are inherently emotional, with workers putting their emotions aside during their professional efforts to raise standards and improve the quality of practice at work. Task conflicts emerge both horizontally and vertically, whereas process and relationship conflicts are, to a high degree, related to status and power, that is, produced vertically. The empirical analyses reveal no differences between the ways in which men and women in welfare occupations perceive or practise intragroup conflict, calling into question the societal discourse that women are not very good at fighting and that they fight more than men.

    Employee effort: reward balance and first-level manager transformational leadership within elderly care2018Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 32, nr 1, s. 407-416Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Negative aspects, staff dissatisfaction and problems related to internal organisational factors of working in elderly care are well-known and documented. Much less is known about positive aspects of working in elderly care, and therefore, this study focuses on such positive factors in Swedish elderly care. We combined two theoretical models, the effort–reward imbalance model and the Transformational Leadership Style model. The aim was to estimate the potential associations between employee-perceived transformational leadership style of their managers, and employees' ratings of effort and reward within elderly care work.

    Methods: The article is based on questionnaires distributed at on-site visits to registered nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists (high-level education) and assistant nurses (low-level education) in nine Swedish elderly care facilities. In order to grasp the positive factors of work in elderly care, we focused on balance at work, rather than imbalance.

    Results: We found a significant association between employees' effort–reward balance at work and a transformational leadership style among managers. An association was also found between employees' level of education and their assessments of the first-level managers.

    Conclusions: We conclude that the first-level manager is an important actor for achieving a good workplace within elderly care, since she/he influences employees' psychosocial working environment. We also conclude that there are differences and inequalities, in terms of well-being, effort and reward at the work place, between those with academic training and those without, in that the former group to a higher degree evaluated their first-level manager to perform a transformational leadership style, which in turn is beneficial for their psychosocial work environment. Consequently, this (re)-produce inequalities in terms of well-being, effort and reward among the employees at the work place.

    What is a good workplace?: Tracing the logics of NPM among managers and professionals in Swedish elderly care2016Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 6, s. 27-46Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Neoliberal policies such as new public management (NPM) have been pivotal to the Swedish elderly care system for two decades. This article explores the discourses of NPM and work by focusing on how a good workplace is represented by professionals and managers in Swedish elderly care. Using qualitative interviews with 31 managers, nurses, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists at nine workplaces, we identified four competing meanings (“storylines”) of how a good workplace is constructed among the interviewees within an ongoing struggle between two discourses. Three storylines, i.e., striving to achieve the mission, a desire to work in elderly care, and striving for good working relationships, are linked to the neoliberal discourse of organizational effectiveness. In contrast, the fourth storyline, support and better working conditions, is related to a welfare-state discourse of traditional labor relations with strong historical roots. Four subject positions available to the managers and professionals were identified: the bureaucrat, the passionate, the professional, and the critic. We conclude that NPM is translated on top of existing discourses, such as those of traditional labor relations, care ideals, and practices, that are already established in elderly care workplaces and that counteract the new policy.

    Tornedalingar om minoritetsskap: ras och platsens betydelse för dekoloniala motståndspraktiker i majoritetssamhället2021Ingår i: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 42, nr 4, s. 51-73Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on an interview study with young and adult Tornedalians, a relatively unknown minority group in the northern part of Sweden. It scrutinizes the informants experiences of identifying with, and navigating within, a minority position in relation to the majority society's discursive ideas and conceptions about them as national minority group. Through decolonial perspectives focusing on race and place, the analysis illuminates how societal prejudices construct the region of Tornedalen as uncivilized, and where Tornedalians are considered to embody a "problematic" racialised position. At the same time, however, the informants express practices of both colonial awareness and decolonial resistance. In this way, the customs, culture, political power, and norms related to urbanisation of the Swedish majority society are questioned and challenged from a Finno-Ugric minority standpoint, with emphasis on nature values and knowledges linked to a rural lifestyle.

    Development and validation of the InEquality in organisations Scale (InE-S): a measure based on Acker’s inequality regimes2023Ingår i: Gender in Management, ISSN 1754-2413, E-ISSN 1754-2421Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to develop a scale that can be used to assess inequality at work based on gender, age and ethnicity that is grounded in Acker’s (2006) inequality regimes.

    Design/methodology/approach: The authors used three representative samples (total N = 1,806) of Swedish teachers, nurses and social workers to develop and validate the scale. The validation process included the assessment of content validity, confirmatory factor analysis for factorial validity, internal consistency and associations with theoretically warranted outcomes and related constructs to assess criterion-related validity and convergent validity.

    Findings: The authors found evidence supporting the content, factorial, criterion-related and convergent validity of the InEquality in organisations Scale (InE-S). Furthermore, the scale demonstrated high internal consistency.

    Originality/value: The newly developed scale InE-S may be used to further the understanding of how inequality at work influences employees. This study makes a contribution to the current literature by providing a scale that, for the first time, can test Acker’s hypotheses using quantitative methods to demonstrate the consequences of inequality at work.

    The Prevalence and Consequences of Intragroup Conflicts for Employee Well-Being in Women-Dominated Work2020Ingår i: Human service organizations, management, leadership & governance, ISSN 2330-3131, E-ISSN 2330-314X, Vol. 44, nr 1, s. 47-62Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examined the prevalence and consequences of intragroup conflicts for well-being in three women-dominated occupations from a gender perspective. Using survey data from 1299 nurses, teachers, and social workers, we found that task conflict was the most common type of conflict but it was unrelated to well-being. Relationship conflict was negatively associated with vigor and positively associated with employee stress, burnout, and depression. Process conflicts were positively associated with depression. Our findings revealed that women and men in the same occupation experience intragroup conflicts in the same way. Organizations should therefore primarily reduce relationship conflicts to ensure employee well-being.

    Practitioner Points:

    ● Not all types of conflicts at work are destructive. Some types of conflict may in fact be a good thing!

    ● Task conflict is the most common type of conflict in women-dominated workplaces, but it does not impair employee well-being. Instead, the contesting of ideas may lead to nuanced decisions.

    ● Managers in women-dominated workplaces should pay close attention to, and try to resolve, relationship conflicts as they may reduce employee well-being.

    Professional knowledge development and evidence-based practice in confusing vs. supportive work organizations: A grounded theory situational analysis of Swedish elderly care2023Ingår i: Physiotherapy Theory and Practice, ISSN 0959-3985, E-ISSN 1532-5040, Vol. 39, nr 5, s. 994-1006Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: This article focuses on knowledge development and health professionals’ opportunitiesto use evidence-based practice (EBP). We studied registered physiotherapists (PT), occupationaltherapists (OT) and nurses (RN) in Swedish elderly-care institutions, a sector known for highturnover and shortages of competent staff.Objective: To examine the perspectives of healthcare providers on professional knowledge developmentand EBP in their organization.

    Methods: We conducted on-site qualitative interviews with a purposive sample of PTs, OTs andRNs, in six elderly care institutions. Situational analysis was used to analyze the material.

    Results: Three discursive professional positions were found: 1) Professional ambition in confusingwork organization; 2) Professional ambition in a knowledge-promoting work organization; and 3) Professional indifference with few aspirations for knowledge development. Professional aspirationstoward knowledge development were high in two of these positions, whereas the third representsa slightly different approach with fewer aspirations for knowledge development. Linked to theseprofessional approaches to knowledge development is a continuum of aggravating or facilitatingfactors within the work organization, including varying degrees of support from leadership of theorganization, as well as few opportunities for rewards.

    Discussion and conclusions: It is concluded that elderly care needs to develop strategies forevidence-based practice in order for the sector to become a sustainable arena for health professionals’career development, and in order to improve the quality of care for the elderly.

    Team social cohesion, professionalism, and patient-centeredness: gendered care work, with special reference to elderly care – a mixed methods study2017Ingår i: BMC Health Services Research, E-ISSN 1472-6963, Vol. 17, artikel-id 381Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Healthcare organisations are facing large demands in recruiting employees with adequate competency to care for the increasing numbers of elderly. High degrees of turnover and dissatisfaction with working conditions are common. The gendered notion of care work as 'women's work', in combination with low salaries and status, may contribute to negative work experiences. There is abundant information about the negative aspects of elderly care health services, but little is known about positive aspects of this work. The study aim was to investigate work satisfaction from a gender perspective among Swedish registered nurses, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists, focusing specifically on healthcare services for the elderly.

    Methods: A mixed methods approach was adopted in which we combined statistics and open-ended responses from a national survey with qualitative research interviews with healthcare professionals in elderly care organisations. The survey was administered to a random sample of 1578 registered nurses, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists. Qualitative interviews with 17 professionals were conducted in six elderly care facilities. Qualitative and quantitative content analyses, chi2 and constructivist grounded theory were used to analyse the data.

    Results: There was a statistically significant difference in overall work satisfaction between those who worked in elderly care and those who did not (64 and 74,4% respectively, p < 0.001). Nine themes were derived from open-ended responses in the questionnaire. The qualitative interviews revealed four prominent storylines: 'Team social cohesion', 'Career development and autonomy', 'Client-centeredness', and 'Invisible and ignored power structures'.

    Conclusions: The results show the complexity of elderly care work and describe several aspects that are important for work satisfaction among health professionals. The results reveal that work satisfaction is dependent on social interrelations and cohesion in the work team, in possibilities to use humour and to have fun together, and in the ability to work as professionals to provide client-centered elderly care. Power relations such as gendered hierarchies were less visible or even ignored aspects of work satisfaction. The storylines are clearly linked to the two central discourses of professionalism and gender equality.
