Abstract

Social license to operate (SLO) refers to the level of acceptance and approval granted to an organization’s operations or projects by stakeholders. Despite garnering greater attention in academic literature, uncertainties persist regarding how SLO translates from theory to practice—particularly in the area of gendered perceptions of this concept. Drawing on original qualitative data collected through interviews with a diverse group of female stakeholders, this paper seeks to explain, the divergence in different interpretations of SLO. In doing so, it demonstrates the importance of employing an intersectional feminist framework, which accounts for the multiple views of female stakeholders.
