Stereotypa könsförväntningar i luften?

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Trafikflyghögskolan

Sammanfattning: This paper is a study on how female pilots handle stereotypical gender expectations in the role as a leader. This qualitative study was performed during winter/spring in 2021. Connections are made to existing theories, mainly Role Congruity Theory (RCT) that suggests that females have issues achieving congruence between their role as a female and their professional role as a leader. The study concludes that female pilots handle stereotypical gender expectations in three ways; Asserting, Ignoring and Adapting. Asserting means that females actively inform the surroundings that she is in charge as pilot/leader/manager. Ignoring means that females ignore the stereotypical gender expectations e.g. by taking over a conversation and thereby demonstrating power. Finally, adapting means that females actively adapt their behaviour to better suit the role of the pilot/leader/manager, and to appear competent, legitimate and professional in their profession. The study also concludes that the stereotypical gender expectations have no negative impact on the flight operation and/or safety.
