    As the second part of a research agenda addressing the idea and meaning of Sustainable Development, this paper responds to the challenges set in the first paper. Using a Foucaudian perspective, we uncover and highlight the importance of discourse in the development of societal context which could lead to the radical change in our epistemological thought necessary for Sustainable Development to reach its potential.

    The term Sustainable Development has been used in many different contexts and consequently has come to represent many different ideas.

  4. J. I. A. Rowney & A. R. Cahoon (1990). Individual and Organizational Characteristics of Women in Managerial Leadership. Journal of Business Ethics 9 (4-5):293 - 316.score: 315.0
    Women are making a substantial impact on the employment market, both in terms of overall numbers as well as by appointment to male-dominated organizational roles. Research on women in leadership positions within organizations has concentrated on two main foci. Firstly, the identification of relevant individual and organizational characteristics and secondly, on the impact of these variables on the women in management roles. This paper presents the findings from a series of studies in relation to these broad dimensions.
