Abstract

This study examined the usefulness of 12 university‐based initiatives for preparing managerial and professional women for their work and careers. Respondents were 267 women graduates of a university commerce and business programme. Data were collected via questionnaires completed anonymously. The three most useful initiatives were: having female business graduates speak candidly about their experiences to students; supporting the development of a women′s network outside the university; and including content on management and human behaviour in organisations more reflective of the experiences of women.
