My project examines gender identity as a form of social capital, an endless dialectic, relational and evolving within middle management fields in diverse Ontario colleges neatly concealed by occupational structures. A prism through which to examine this phenomenon is Bourdieu’s (1977) concepts of capital, habitus and field (Bourdieu and Wacquant 1992, Iellatchitch, et. al 2003). Although the theorist was ‘gender blind’, instead preferring class as the primary structure of social space, Huppatz (2012) and other feminists (Moi 1991) have adopted and expanded Bourdieu’s concepts to advance the primacy of gender as a form of social capital and a means of informing and understanding gendered practices in the workplace.
