An Integrated Set of Exercises for Increasing Student Awareness of Issues Facing Female Expatriates
Lovelace, Kathi J.; Yunhyung Chung,
Journal of Management Education, v34 n5 p746-774 Oct 2010
Opportunities for expatriate assignments are increasing and many students are interested in gaining international work experience. However, females are underrepresented in this expatriate applicant pool. This is because organizational members often perceive that female expatriates would be less successful than male counterparts and thereby females are less preferable for foreign assignments. To increase awareness of this discrepancy and teach effective human resource strategies for increasing the success of both male and female expatriates, a lecturette is offered with a set of integrated exercises, including a Jeopardy activity, for addressing facts and myths about female expatriates, cultural influences affecting global assignments, human resource practices and implications, and strategies for expatriate success. (Contains 1 note and 1 table.)
