Organisational Barriers for Women in Senior Management: A Comparison of Turkish and New Zealand Universities
Neale, Jenny; Ozkanli, Ozlem
Gender and Education, v22 n5 p547-563 Sep 2010
This paper reports on the second phase of a multi-country study examining cross-cultural perspectives of gender and management in universities. The first phase of this research with eight countries found that the representation of women was consistently low, especially at Rector/Vice Chancellor level. In the second phase interviews were conducted with both male and female senior managers including current and former Rectors/Vice Chancellors. The focus of this paper is on the organisational barriers to women becoming and being managers in Turkish and New Zealand universities. Twenty-four interviews were conducted in Turkey and 26 in New Zealand. Rectors/Vice Chancellors and other senior academic colleagues were found to be crucial in supporting academics into senior management. Barriers discussed include time management and role conflict between work and non-work life. (Contains 8 tables and 1 note.)
