The author uses intersectionality theory to explore if these questions are seen as separated or interacted with each other. By using discourse analysis five different themes are found in the material. The themes are “What do the words gender equality and diversity really mean?”, “A question about equity”, “A question about profitability”, “The citizen perspective”, “Intersectionality”, “Gender equality and diversity – a question of priority?”.
The results show that the word diversity is understood... (More)
This essay investigates how issues about gender equality and diversity are understood in local government. The study is conducted in the municipality of Lund and is based on material such as equal opportunities programs and multiplicity plans. The author uses intersectionality theory to explore if these questions are seen as separated or interacted with each other. By using discourse analysis five different themes are found in the material. The themes are “What do the words gender equality and diversity really mean?”, “A question about equity”, “A question about profitability”, “The citizen perspective”, “Intersectionality”, “Gender equality and diversity – a question of priority?”.
The results show that the word diversity is understood differently in the programs and plans. Diversity is associated with equity and profitability meanwhile gender equality is seen from a equity perspective. Many of the programs are referring to laws that don’t exist anymore, which can question the priority. The plans and programs does not include an intersectional understanding of discrimination. (Less)
