Abstract [sv]

Detta är en kvalitativ studie vars syfte är att undersöka hur genus ger sig uttryck i ledarskap hos enhetschefer inom socialt arbete. Den frågeställning som vi har valt att undersöka är hur kvinnliga och manliga enhetschefer inom socialt arbete ser på sitt ledarskap. Vi har undersökt hur manliga och kvinnliga enhetschefer beskriver sitt ledarskap, sina ledaregenskaper samt hur de beskriver andras egenskaper. Vi har valt att definiera genus, kön, ledarskap, maskulint, och feminint då dessa begrepp innehåller många tolkningar. Studiens resultat bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer med manliga och kvinnliga enhetschefer inom socialt arbete. Vi anser att det är viktigt att beskriva hur genus ger sig uttryck i ledarskapet eftersom mannen oftast ses som norm vid ledarskap, dock så är socialt arbete sedan år tillbaka förknippat som ett kvinnoyrke. Något som vi har funnit i samband med denna c-uppsats är att informanterna ofta beskrev andra som typiskt manliga eller kvinnliga, men att de inte själva beskrev sig efter samma normer.Nyckelord: Ledarskap,Detta är en kvalitativ studie vars syfte är att undersöka hur genus ger sig uttryck i ledarskap hos enhetschefer inom socialt arbete.

Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study aimed to examine how gender is expressed in leadership. The question which we have chosen to examine is how the male and female managers in social work looks at their leadership. We have investigated how male and female manager describes their leadership, their leadership skills and how they describe other people's qualityfications. We have chosen to define the words gender, sex, leadership, masculine and feminine. These words contain many interpretations. Results of the study are based on qualitative interviews with male and female managers in social work. We believe it is important to describe how gender expresses in leadership, as the male most often is seen as the norm for leadership, however, social work has since several decades been associated to females. Something we have found in this study is that the informant often describes that other leaders often posses typical male and female traits, but that they themselves don’t apply this description onto themselves.Keywords: Leadership, Gender, male, fThis is a qualitative study aimed to examine how gender is expressed in leadership.
