Abstract

There are now more women in management in Australia than a decade ago. A number of factors have contributed to their increasing numbers, including changes in legislation supporting women working, more child care places, changes in the structure of work, and attitudes to women bosses. While their representation in management has increased, their numbers in senior positions is still very low. It will take time to change people′s perceptions of women in management, to overcome discrimination, and to develop structures at work and in the community that will aid women′s move into management. There will need to be more training and development opportunities. Time is also on their side.
