Integration of Women into Management Positions: A Research Review.
Terborg, James R.
This paper reviews the literature on the psychological and social processes involved in the integration of women into management positions. The author concentrates on two areas. First is the entry of women into management (including women's career choices, choice of organization, and the effects of these choices on the organization. These effects include the impact on recruitment procedures and male job applicants). The second area concerns the socialization and development of women managers once they have gained entry. The research in this area deals with the personal needs, values, and skills of women managers, as well as with the physical-technological environment and the social-interpersonal environment that women managers must face. The author suggests that researchers should conduct more longitudinal field research and should investigate the effects of women in management on the society as a whole. (Author/DS)
