Abstract [sv]

Bristen av kvinnor på de högre positionerna inom ICA som i övrigt är en kvinnodominerad bransch utgör intresseområdet för denna uppsats. Vi vill med uppsatsen undersöka och belysa de erfarenheter som kvinnor på olika positioner inom organisationen har gällande deras möjligheter till karriär. Uppsatsen är en kvalitativ intervjustudie med en fenomenologisk teoretisk ansats som även stödjs av andra teorier gällande organisation och kön. Empirin som studiens resultat bygger på kommer från intervjuer med sju kvinnor på olika nivåer inom ICA. Resultatet i sin tur presenteras utifrån fem olika teman vilka belyser kvinnornas upplevelser gällande: Uppfattningar om organisationen, Jämställdhet, Rekrytering, Kompetensutveckling och karriär samt Hinder och möjligheter till karriär. Resultatet visar att kvinnornas levda erfarenheter gällande sina karriärmöjligheter inom organisationen skiljer sig åt, beroende på vilken position de besitter.  Ett flertal hinder urskiljs i resultatet, vilka kan vara möjliga anledningar till kvinnornas underrepresentation på de högre positionerna.

Abstract [en]

The lack of women in higher positions within ICA as for the rest is a female-dominated industry represents the area of interest for this essay. We want this paper to investigate and illuminate the experiences of women in various positions within the organization regarding their career opportunities. The essay is a qualitative study with a phenomenological theoretical approach which is also supported by other theories regarding organizations and gender. The empirical data that the study´s results are based on comes from interviews with seven women at different levels within ICA. The result in turn is presented based on five different themes which highlight women’s experiences regarding: Perceptions of the organization, Gender equality, Recruitment, Competence development and career and finally Barriers and opportunities for career. The results show that women’s lived experiences regarding their career opportunities within the organization differ, depending on the position they occupy. Several obstacles are identified in the results, which may be possible reasons to women’s under-representation in higher positions.
