The focus of this research paper is on women in managerial positions within organisations in the Czech Republic. The paper draws on theories of gendered power relations in organisations and their management, an intersectional approach to gender inequalities, and, methodologically, a biographical approach to gender sociology. As a case study, its data was gathered through biographical interviews with female managers within the same company. The text is based on two selected interviews and illustrates how, in order to create conditions and policies for gender equality, it is necessary to understand not only career history, organising processes and work conditions within a company, but also the division of power, work and earning expectations within the household. The text shows how an intersectional approach based on feminist thought can enrich diversitymanagement.
