An increasing number of women are preparing themselves for managerial and professional careers. They are doing this by enrolling in and graduating from schools of administration, obtaining additional professional designations, working long hours, and acquiring the years of experience necessary for entering the ranks of corporate management. However, the number of women who advance to levels of General Manager and above are few and this pattern is common across all industrialised countries (Morrison & Von Glinow, 1990; Adler & Israeli, 1988).
