THE GENDER GAP IN MANAGEMENT: A CHALLENGING AFFAIR
Industrial and Commercial Training
Article publication date: 1 April 1992
Studies the behaviour of men and women in working groups – men through the analogy of the pecking order, i.e. hierarchical, and women through that of the crab basket, i.e. equality. Discusses the respective advantages and disadvantages of the two groups, which appear to be complementary. Concludes, however, that, despite the apparent complementariness, both sides need to show mutual understanding of their respective codes before they can achieve constructive co‐operation in management.
