Gender and Management in HEIs: Changing Organisational and Management Structures
Ozkanli, Ozlem; Machado, Maria de Lourdes; White, Kate; O'Connor, Pat; Riordan, Sarah; Neale, Jenny

This paper reports on the second phase of a multi-country study examining cross cultural perspectives of gender and management in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). It examines the broader labour market context and legislative frameworks for higher education in each country and then analyses the literature on women in university management. The paper presents the findings of research with male and female senior managers about their perceptions of women as HEI managers within changing organisational and management structures. It concludes that although HEI's are now largely aware of barriers to women getting into and on in senior management, they have not addressed the organisational structures and cultures that perpetuate this inequity. (Contains 3 tables.)
