The myth of sisterhood and management effectiveness: An investigation of intragender diversity and group conflict

by McGriff, Michelle D., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2011, 169 pages; 3457291


This study is designed to assist the understanding of how group-level conflict processes influence horizontal collectivism or vertical individualism within intracategorical diversity team dynamics. Grounded theory investigation that addresses intracategorical conflict at a multilevel or secondary level through data gathered from one diversity group will endeavor to conclude that indeed diversity at a intracategorical level merits much further examination. Utilizing a review of current related literature, this research project compares intraracial conflicts to intragender conflicts using similar criteria of qualitative measure analyses. The qualitative analyses determined the extent and level of the intracategorical conflict and vertical individualism among women in the workplace.
