Changing Career Patterns for Women in the Bell System.
Boehm, Virginia R.
The Bell system is the largest nongovernmental employer of people in the country, and over 50 percent of the people employed by its systems are women. This paper deals with the new personnel policies concerning women within the Bell system; in particular, it describes the AT & T Management Assessment Program (MAP), the vehicle used to identify women with middle management potential. The MAP is a two-day assessment program wherein the candidates are observed in a variety of group and individual management simulations, and evaluated as Recommended, or Not Recommended, for middle management positions. Those women recommended are then offered the opportunity to participate in a career development plan. The paper also describes possibilities for advancement for women in nonmanagement positions.
