Universities present themselves as gender-neutral meritocracies, concerned with the transmission and creation of scientific, objective knowledge. However, it is now widely accepted that they are in fact gendered organisations (Brooks 2001; Collinson & Hearn 1996; Currie et al 2002; Deem et al 2008; Hearn 2001; Morley 1994 and 1999). In this chapter the focus is on the broader organisational culture, focussing particularly on its gendered character as seen through the eyes of senior academic managers.
