Abstract

This article examines the problems management must address with an increasingly female work force and is focused on the conflicting demands of family versus career. Statistics highlighting the impact of working women and dual career families are cited. Management policies that alleviate some of the career/family conflict are also discussed. The article concludes with human resource development strategies to accommodate the increasing numbers of working mothers as well as fathers.
