Interacting international, societal and organizational contexts produce distinctive organizational inequality regimes. This paper goals to grasp multilevel processes influencing gendered, classed, raced and aged inequality regimes and employee hierarchies inside &ldquo;ComCo&rdquo;, an Australian subsidiary of a multinational firm. Our qualitative important feminist-grounded idea strategy triangulated organizational documentation, worker interviews and open-ended questionnaire responses. The emergent idea prompt that ComCo&rsquo;s globally and societally embedded neoliberal-capitalist&ndash;masculine development crucial produced not simplistically one-sided, however multifaceted and diversified masculine&ndash;particular person&ndash;white and female&ndash;collaborative&ndash;coloured development mechanisms, together with excellent staff broadening from quantitatively excessive to qualitatively conformant qualities and practices, to represent not merely unencumbered masculine, however all staff, as present for firm development. Nevertheless, female&ndash;collective&ndash;coloured mechanisms, co-opted to supporting development, remained subordinated to masculine&ndash;particular person&ndash;white mechanisms constructed as more practical at delivering development, reinforcing ComCo&rsquo;s inequality regimes and employee hierarchies regardless of variety initiatives. Organizations should determine and handle processes reinforcing inequality regimes to genuinely promote employment fairness and variety.
