Women and Minorities in Management: A Survey of Metropolitan Philadelphia Corporations.
Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
This study was designed to determine whether research and development management is addressing properly the training needs of minorities and women. A survey of Philadelphia corporations indicated that women and minorities were relatively new to managerial ranks and were generally concentrated in lower-management positions. However, some progress in this area is reported. The recent increase in the number of women and minorities in first-level management positions is attributed to: the emergence of well-educated women and minority-group members; the use of legal action to remedy discriminatory practices; and the increased enforcement of affirmative action laws. It is indicated that women and minorities may need additional training in certain management skills, but that few corporations are responding effectively in this area. The report concludes that it remains problematic whether minorities and women will ever attain a significant number of high managerial positions. (WP)
