Ideas emanating from the intersections of postcolonial and feminist perspectives provide new avenues for cross-cultural management theory and pedagogy, and contribute a set of competencies and intellectual orientations necessary for understanding the complexity of doing business under globalization. These perspectives are valuable for providing analytic tools to understand organizational phenomena, ideas, and practices across borders. With notable exceptions, there is a dearth of research that relies on insights from postcolonial and feminist contributions to the social sciences in the international and cross-cultural management area (Jack et al., 2008; Özkazanç-Pan, 2008, 2012). Expanding on this point, I discuss intellectual contributions of postcolonial and feminist thought to international management and follow up with a discussion on their impact for cross-cultural management education.
