Gender exists within all social structures and strata of society (e.g. within ethnic and socio-economic groups) and is perhaps the most engraved social structure in society and organizations. However, gender is still extremely silent in management accounting and control research. In this project we aim to address this lack of attention by focusing on the role of gender in management accounting and control. Current research tasks include reviewing literature streams and conducting experiments on the role of gender for the perceptions of control in supervisor-supervised dyad.
