Prentice, Marjorie G.
A project was conducted to provide descriptive data regarding mid-career women in administration and to develop program materials based on these data. Specific project objectives were (1) to provide descriptive data identifying areas of concern for mid-career women in adminstration; (2) to review selected literature in the fields of the psychology of women, the states of adult development relating to mid-life and mid-career stages, effective administrator managerial practices, and organizational barriers impacting on women's equity issues; (3) to synthesize these data as a basis for program development; and (4) to develop programs and learning activities with potential impact for mid-career women in administration. Included among the project's activities were the computerized analysis of data from 197 responses to a project-developed survey instrument; a review of literature on the above-mentioned topics; development of a 33-page annotated bibliography (included in the final project report); synthesis of data from the survey and the literature review in papers on mid-career women as mentors and career patterns and gender in mid-career in the report) covering managerial roles and functions, formal and interpersonal communication, decision making, time management, and management by objectives.
