Working Title of Thesis:

The impact of gender integration in Saudi based organizations - The Experience of Saudi workers

Abstract

Saudi Arabia is moving towards reforms and changes are taking place in culture and society since the announcement of their vision 2030. Workplaces have had their share of changes and the main aim has been to provide equal opportunities to both male and female so that they can actively participate in the growth and success of the country. Set against this backdrop, this research explores the phenomenon of transitioning from a segregated to a mixed-gender environment in Saudi based organizations. The purpose of the study is to explore in detail the lived experiences of Saudi workers as they transition from a segregated to a mixed-gender environment, and in so doing, investigate the impact that this experience may have on their identities.
