Video interview with Kate Mackenzie Davey

My initial research interest was on the relation between individuals and their work, specifically how work changed people. Women joining male-dominated organizations were a group that didn’t fit the culture so were likely to adapt to change. Talking about that change turned out to be very difficult and involves complex contradictions between discourses of change and stability (Arnold and Mackenzie Davey, 2000). More recently, I have focused on the perceptions of politics in careers in organizations and the career achievements of outsiders (Mackenzie Davey, in press).

In future I want to explore how outsiders manage the politics of career achievement in organizations.
