Managerial Women in Mixed Groups: Implications of Recent Research.
Staley, Constance M.
Research on the problems faced by women in managerial positions is reviewed in this paper. Work in the area of tokenism is presented first, followed by similar research documenting the fact that females participating in mixed groups operate at a disadvantage. Research on the problems of women in leadership roles is presented next. Other experiments about females in mixed groups that produced potentially positive results are also reviewed. The last part of the paper presents ways the findings of the research previously reviewed could be used to improve instruction on female interaction in mixed groups in existing management training programs.
