Compares the career experiences of women managers who are members of the family that owns the organization and women managers who are not. Results of a survey show “women family managers” enjoy increased status, job security and flexibility. Many are able to take advantage of this flexibility to combine child rearing and career roles. “Non‐family women managers” perceive themselves as competitive and independent people, they have better academic qualifications and are less likely to be married and have children. However, both groups are unenthusiastic about their training, mentors and personal contacts and consider that career progress is easier for men. In general, all women managers feel they lack power and opportunities to make progress.
