Gender & creative communities: the end of hierarchy?

The paradigm shift we have been witnessing in the economy is also happening regarding gender balance. Gender categories as hierarchical and differentiating are exploding, and it impacts many areas. 

In the work environment, gender should play a little role. But it's still not the case: there are still general discrimination against women or queer, wage inequality, etc., except in the innovative ecosystems, collaborative economy, social business, creative networks, etc.
Is it allowed because the values that are promoted in those organizations (autonomy, trust) are more "feminine" and inclusive?

We will also explore how this attention paid to singularity and holistic approach to the person in these new ecosystems) also impacts other areas (sexual-identity fluidity, neo-relationships, sexuality, etc.). 


We are going to explore these questions: 

1) describing this shift in comparison to the traditional work and academic world 

2) analyzing if that shift is related to generation change and / or way of working ?

3) If it's allowed because the values that are now promoted in those organizations (autonomy, trust) are more "feminine" / inclusive?

4) And how this attention paid to singularity AND holistic approach to the person (at work) also impacts other areas (gender identities, relationships, sexuality etc.) as an opening conclusion part.
