Abstract

Discusses the barriers to women′s advancement, identifying the “male equals management” paradigm as a constraint. Also considers the implications of women′s role in the family, individual characteristics and the importance of language. Notes the impact of the formal and informal organization as factors which create the “glass ceiling”, inhibiting women′s ability to climb the corporate ladder. Identifies initiatives such as Opportunity 2000 and training courses as potential solutions to the problem. Also suggests that male managers and organizations per se should be more flexible, which would create greater achievement opportunities for women managers.
