PhD researcher, Feminist Scholar, Senior Lecturer
Stockholm (Sweden)


Klara Regnö is a feminist scholar and senior lecturer in the field of Gender, Management and Organization. Her work includes studies of gender and career opportunities, leadership, managerial work at different strategic levels and in different organizational settings both in private and public sector, including academia. The theory and practice of change is also an area of interest in her research. She has studied change initiatives in organizations, gender mainstreaming, work for gender equality and diversity in close collaboration with different companies and organizations. Her recent works include the chapter “Challenges to feminist solidarity in the era of New Public Management” in Thwaites & Pressland eds. Being an Early Career Feminist Academic. Palgrave Macmillan


During her stay at Faber she will be working on a book on feminist leadership research and research on gender equality/equity/diversity. The purpose of the book is to bridge the gap between academia and society and spread research results to a wider audience. Through awareness of structural barriers, managers can help create equal working conditions and thus pave the way for women and other disadvantaged groups in working life. This book wishes to make a contribution to increased gender equality in the labor market.

Faber, beautiful and inspiring

I had the complete privilege of participating in the Faber Residency on Feminisms in November 2017. The coordinators of the program, director Francesc Serés, Gavina Freixa and Pau Àvila, responsible for administration and communication, welcomed the us in best possible way and made every effort to make our stay memorable and productive. The residency offered a wonderful opportunity to both focus on my own work and to engage in inspiring conversations with my co-residents, a diverse group of scholars, journalist and writers over dinner! What I also liked with Faber was the opportunity to engage in the local community. During my stay, I presented some of the themes in my book on gender/feminism, organization and leadership to the pupils at the Cor de Maria School. 

The facilities at Faber are excellent and after intense working hours it was wonderful to clear the thoughts at some of the nearby trails to the background of a breathtaking scenery. I want to extend my deepest gratitude to the coordinating team and the Ajuntament the d’Olot and the Generalitat de Catalunya, departament de Cultura, for making this wonderful experience possible.
