Women in Public Administration and Management: Trends, Analysis and Training.
Designed to encourage governments to promote the increased employment of professional women in public administration and management, this document provides facts and trends of employment, current policy initiatives, an analysis of barriers and successes, and a list of seminars and training sessions designed to improve opportunities for women to contribute to the development and well-being of their countries. Through a brief analysis of five countries (Uganda, Thailand, Brazil, Latin America, and the United States), the differential access of women to managerial and professional positions is documented. Advances made in the public employment of women are cited and activities designed to increase the participation of women in professional and managerial positions in public service are described. Charts are used to illustrate concepts given in the remaining text. In the first chart, "Causes and Remedies for Discrimination," four major problems--awareness/socialization, formal education, entry, and promotion--are juxtaposed with four major styles of remedies--laws, formal education, training, and networking and organizational strategies. The second chart emphasizes how values, attitudes, and behaviors can be changed through the application of the above remedies. Possible barriers and obstacles to women's advancement are categorized as external versus internal barriers. The document concludes with a list of suggested training modules. (LH)
