The past, present and future status of women in management, and women in management research, in Canada is examined. Women have entered the Canadian workforce in unprecedented numbers, including managerial and professional ranks. Increasing numbers of women have prepared themselves for career advancement through business education and additional years of work experience but, despite these developments, women continue to find it difficult to attain senior management ranks. Research initiatives as well as development activities designed to assist both managerial and professional women and their employing organisations are discussed. Despite some reasons for optimism, further gains will continue to be made only slowly.
