Women: Managers Stuck in the Middle?
O'Leary, Virginia E.
Promoting women into higher level organizational positions is vital as a social issue and a subject for organizational theory and research. Recently, Henning and Jardin have identified an internal factor that poses a problem to women and their job-related aspirations. The absence of long-term career commitment has been found to inhibit the sucessful transition from supervisory to managerial positions for women. Also, in contrast to men who see problems of upward job mobility as centering on people around them, women perceive them as centered on themselves. Women's inward preoccupation dulls their ability to assess other people objectively. As a result, they find it difficult to move from the role of supervisor-specialist to that of manager-generalist.
